Introduction

Natascha Zupan and Sylvia Servaes

“Unless Colombian NGOs successfully convey their multidimensional understanding of peace to the international development community, the paradoxical situation could quickly arise in which overseas funding for their work is ultimately linked to the perpetuation of the armed conflict, not to the attainment of a lasting peace.”
