Practitioner Profile | Roxanne Krystalli

The Colombian government and Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) recently signed peace accords bringing an end to 52 years of violent conflict. For his efforts to negotiate and conclude the peace deal, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos was awarded this year’s Nobel Peace Prize on October 7. Yet on October 2, Colombian voters rejected the deal by a narrow margin in a national referendum, putting the peace process back in limbo.

In this practitioner profile, ATHA discusses the situation in Colombia with Roxanne Krystalli, a researcher and humanitarian practitioner in the areas of gender, violence, and victim-centered transitional justice. Roxanne is a Program Manager at the Humanitarian Evidence Program at The Feinstein International Center, and a PhD candidate at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. She has extensive experience researching victimhood and the transition from violence in Colombia. She sat down with us to discuss the latest developments in the Colombian peace process, and what a gender perspective can teach us about violence, transitional justice, and peace.
