Eduardo Acostamadiedo completed a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia in 2015 after interning at the legislative observatory watchdog Congreso Visible. Thereafter he worked as a political analyst in the Community-Oriented Reintegration of Ex-combatants (CORE) programme of the International Organization for Migration at the UN Mission to Colombia. In this job, he learnt about the potential advantages and limitations of aid in post-conflict situations and decided to pursue a career improving public integrity in post-conflict regions in order to foster sustainable impacts. Eduardo is interested in policy analysis and evaluation using statistical, cartographic and participatory methodologies.
