Tools for the construction of peace and coexistence in school contexts

Project Details


In response to the country's need to build peaceful forms of coexistence and rescue the social fabric historically affected by the armed conflict, the National Policy for Coexistence proposes strategies that incorporate democratic processes into educational practices, emphasizing dialogue, mediation and peaceful conflict resolution. The challenge is to contribute from the school environment to the formation of a citizenship that contributes to the construction of a peaceful and sustainable Colombia: to improve the development environment and promote new forms of relationship. In response to this need, the present project proposes to elaborate a diagnosis of the process of appropriation and implementation of the Policy of School Coexistence, and to incorporate its content in the construction of a physical and a virtual tool. The former is a primer that guides and facilitates schools in the construction of contextualized strategies that respond to specific situations faced by actors in the school community. The virtual tool promotes the development of necessary skills within the teaching team, for its sustainability. In a mixed study, combining qualitative and quantitative techniques, whose unit of analysis will be the school context. The actors of the school community will be approached in the investigation of the appropriation of the School Coexistence Policy and the problems of coexistence that afflict them. This information will be integrated into the construction of the primer and the virtual tool, whose effectiveness will be evaluated by the school community itself. In order to facilitate the transferability of the content to other contexts, the same exercise will be carried out in a large city (Bogotá) and an intermediate one (Ibagué)
