CEDLA Lecture: The Colombian Peace Process at a Crossroads. Challenges and Perspectives
Stefan Peters, Instituto CAPAZ (Bogotá) & University of Giessen
The Colombian peace process is at a crossroads. Although there is important progress, for example regarding transitional justice, various key issues for peace building continue to be unsolved. Moreover, we cannot speak of peace at all and rather we are observing a transformed violence. The talk will analyze the state of the peace process five years after the peace agreement and highlight important voids in both the agreement and implementation. It will close with recommendations that are crucial for building a lasting and sustainable peace in Colombia.
