Childhood, peace and conflict: Reconciliation processes form the boys and girl’s perspective

Procesos de reconciliación desde la mirada de los niños y las niñas


The research examined the visual understanding of the peace of children in the South East and South West of Barranquilla. We developed the investigation with a group of 69 children from Barranquilla, some whose families experienced the armed conflict and others who did not experience it directly. Both groups understand peace as peaceful social interactions that are built from their families and schools while distinguishing themselves in the way each group understands the conflict. The former represents the conflict based on the armed violence experienced by their families in rural areas, while the latter refers to the urban violence in their neighborhoods.
