This event offers an opportunity to take stock of the many challenges facing the implementation phase of the recently concluded peace agreement between the government of Juan Manuel Santos and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-People’s Army (FARC) in Colombia.

Organised shortly after the scheduled plebiscite on Sunday 2 October, this panel discussion with three renowned experts on the longstanding Colombian armed conflict and its multifaceted drivers and consequences will provide an assessment of the election result, as well as reflections on what ‘peace’ may mean for Colombian society.

Central areas of the peace agreements to be covered include Colombia’s drug economy, regional dimensions of peace and conflict, gender aspects of the peace agreement, as well as the innovative approaches to the peace talks that made the agreement possible.
