Daniela Quinche Pachón

Daniela Quinche is an extern with the Institute for Integrated Transitions (IFIT). Based in London, she supports the work of IFIT’s Law and Peace Practice Group and Peace Treaty Initiative.

Before joining IFIT, Daniela worked for almost five years in the Colombian transitional justice system created through the peace agreement between the Colombian government and the FARC. She led several teams of interdisciplinary analysts who prepared factual analyses that formed the bases of the decisions of the Panel for Acknowledgment of the Truth of the Special Jurisdiction for Peace (JEP). Her focus on adapting social science methodologies to concrete research problems allowed the Panel to test case theories centred on establishing command responsibility for international crimes.

Daniela also previously worked at the Office of the High Commissioner of Peace in Colombia, supporting the Colombian peace negotiations while they were still underway, as well as supporting early implementation of the peace deal. Earlier in her career, she worked as a researcher, leading work on key chapters of the annual Cultural Citizenship reports of different cities in Colombia.

Daniela holds BAs in Political Science from the Universidad Nacional de Colombia and a PGDip in Constitutional Law from the Universidad Libre. She is pursuing a Master’s in Conflict, Security and Development at the University of Sussex, UK.

Working languages: English and Spanish.
