This is an instrument used by the Bogotá Chamber of Commerce to entrepreneurs and businessmen in the country's capital, with the goal of proposing actions to be carried out by the National Government and the private sector, under a peace-building scenario.  

The Survey is comprised by three modules:  Negotiations and the construction of peace, transitional justice and endorsement of the accords.  Among the survey's most important characteristics is the fact that it is carried out through a randomized, stratified sampling segmented by the company's location, size and economic activity.

The CCB is convinced that, with the potential signature of the peace accords and an eventual post-conflict stage coming be, the private sector is tasked with playing a key role in the re-construction of the social weave, in the strengthening of the institutions and in the promotion of development with social inclusion, based on a deep commitment towards human rights. 

Therefore, it has developed a Guide for the Construction of Peace; this is a publication produced by the CCB and the International Catalan Institute for Peace whose goal is to promote a reflection about the participation that the enterprise sector has in the construction of a violence-free society. 


Research was conducted jointly with Fundación Ideas para la Paz (the Ideas for Peace Foundation) and the Instituto Catalán Internacional para la Paz (the International Catalan Institute for Peace), inquiring about the perspectives and contributions the enterprise sector has and expects to make in the construction of peace. The document provides the results of focus groups held with members of civil society, local authorities and entrepreneurs, as well as the results from the enterprise survey about peace.
