On February 12, 2019, German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier visited the CAPAZ Institute as part of his state visit of Colombia and Ecuador. President Steinmeier is an active supporter of CAPAZ, and supported the institute's foundation in 2017. Prof Dr. Stefan Peters, academic director of CAPAZ, welcomed President Steinmeer at the Museum Claustro de San Agustín in Bogotá, where they exchanged information about the work of CAPAZ in Colombia and Germany.

The University of Erfurt, represented by the Willy Brandt School of Public Policy, recently became a member of CAPAZ, which aims to accompany the Columbian peace process with educational programs and research projects.

You can find more information about his visit on the CAPAZ website (in German and Spanish).
