Colombia Peace Process Updates

Authors: Andrea Fernández Aponte, Lisa Haugaard

On November 24, 2016, the Colombian government and the now-former guerrilla group, Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC), signed a final peace agreement, officially ending a fifty-year long conflict that claimed over 260,000 lives and displaced more than 7 million people. Since then, the Latin America Working Group (LAWG) has been closely following the peace accord implementation process, documenting both progress and obstacles for policymakers and activists.
