Education for peace: the pedagogical proposal of the Post- Conflict Diploma Course, Medellín 2016

Ramón Salazar Prada, León Darío Marín Arenas


The Peace Process brought forward between the Colombian government and the FARC-EP guerrilla group
demanded a new understanding of the internal conflict that Colombia has been living in since the second
half of the last century. Within the formative options that were pronounced on this political conjuncture, it
is worth mentioning the non-formal education processes that arise within communities and which reflect
the thematic and pedagogical interests of their participants. The Post-Conflict Diploma Course (Medellín,
2016) is a milestone in education for peace, as it was managed as part of the Local Planning and Participatory
Budgeting Program, a democratic tool that allows communities to prioritize resources for intervention
in their most pressing problems. This educational scenario was built on the guidelines of the SFCP, which is
based on critical and social pedagogies, and on the approach of capability and skills development of the
subjects in formation.
