Research

Sonia Garzon’s MSCA Research Project, The Intersectional Politics of Antagonism in Peacebuilding – IPAP, is based on the case study of Colombia. This research lies at the intersections of peacebuilding, transitional justice, and gender and its intersectionalities. In particular, her research interrogates how race, gender, class, and spatial intersectionalities become entangled in resistance to peace.
