Speaker information

Maria Paula Hoyos, Researcher, Krock Institute for International Peace Studies, Maria Paula Hoyos is a Researcher of the Barometer Initiative in Colombia of the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, Notre Dame University. MSc in Human Rights from the London School of Economics. Historian and Political scientist from Universidad de los Andes, Bogotá (Colombia). She has experience working on topics of forced displacement and land dispossession as she worked for two years in the Unit of Land Restitution. She has also edited two books related to women rights in Colombia: De criadas y sirvientas a mujeres trabajadoras con derechos (2013) and Mujeres muy políticas, mujeres muy públicas (2014).

Maria Paula Hoyos (Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies) - As part of the Peace Accord, the Kroc Institute was included as a technical component of the Monitoring and Verification Committee (CSIVI) and as support for the International Verification component. Since then, the Initiative has been monitoring the implementation of the Peace Accord, it has published one report (November 2017), and hopes to publish the next one by the end of April. The first results show that, although there are clear alerts that can affect the implementation of the Peace Agreement as a whole, in a comparative perspective its implementation has had a similar rhythm as other Accords around the globe.
