    My thesis is about forgiveness and reconciliation in Colombia based in the process of peace between government Colombian and the FARC guerrilla: I looked to research upon a project called “peace laboratorys” in where victims, civil population, businessmen, former combatants, and other actors shared about themself and its experiences of life. When the project started none of them knew about its histories, then while the project was developed every participant start learning about what is forgiveness and the reconciliation.

    However, when the project finished every one knew the personal history of everybody and between They were forgiven and asked for forgiveness, in special toward the victims of the armed conflict in Colombia.

    My thesis went about the impact of the rebuilding of the social fabric in many places where the war was for a long time, using the forgiveness and reconciliation to this end.

      Great ideas, Jacqueline.

    Hello
    I have a degree in mathematics, a specialty that belongs to the faculty of natural and formal sciences and I am preparing to be a master in mathematics.
    The wave movement is one of the widest and most unusual scientific subjects in which it can be studied at any technical level, the behavior of water waves and the characteristics of light propagation and the familiar sound sound of everyday experience or reality. My thesis topic is about the formulation of the “lonely wave”. In said formulation, partial differential equations are applied. For this it is necessary to review the previous topics, different differences and mathematical theories, mainly theorems.
    Have you ever defended your thesis before the jury?
    I already had the experience of sustaining my thesis to obtain the degree, in the moment before the lift sent me something nervous and anxious but with the development of the subject I was calm while thinking that the effort would lead me to success.
    best regards

    My thesis is named “Case study about Intercultural Bilingual Education in the public school Cochabamba, in Soccos, Ayacucho, 2016-2017.” This is a qualitative study that investigates and discusses how to implement a Intercultural Bilingual Education policy in a public administration rural school for the native language Quechua Chanka. We want to depeen into the reality of this school because Soccos is one of the poorest districts in Ayacucho, victim of violence during the period 1980 to 2000, documented in the Final Report of the Comission of Thruth and Reconciliation (2003). The methodology includes the design of ad-hoc instruments for information collection: interviews with Director, and focus group with students, parents and teachers of Cochabamba school. With respect to the results, there is formal knowledge of the Intercultural Bilingual Education pedagogical proposal; it promotes the participation of sages or “yachaq”; it incorporates use of the community calendar, as “yarka aspiy”. On the hother hand, regarding the difficulties, the school has dedicated a minimum time to teaching quechua: one day a week, and there are limitations in the curriculum planing. In conclussion, teachers do have a quechua oral mastery, but not a written one. They have not received training for the use of workbooks therefore they cannot teach students to write Quechua.

    The topic of my thesis was entitled “The responsibility of doctors in reckless crimes.” The reason for choosing this particular topic was the case of my father, who passed away in the city of Chincha due to medical malpractice. I always wanted to do research on medical imprudence and decided to go to study a Master’s in Spain. I studied the Master’s degree at the University of Barcelona and it was there where I prepared my thesis. I took advantage of the university and also of Pompeu Fabra University libraries. As well as counting on the advice of my professor Joan Queralt. In 2012 I passed my oral defence in front of a Jury composed of three extraordinary criminal law experts. The result of my research was obtaining an outstanding grade. At the beginning of my defence, I was slightly nervous, but I soon realized that I knew the topic very well and managed to convince the examining jury of my position.
    Best regards.
