- Conflict prevention, resolution and state building
- Colombia, FARC, peace, reintegration
The peace agreement signed in late 2016 between the Colombian government and the Armed Revolutionary Forces of Colombia (FARC) ended more than 50 years of conflict, making it a hugely important development not only for Colombia itself but more widely for the field of conflict resolution. The signing of the agreement started a complex implementation process that will take many years for completion. This Podcast was recorded in Colombia with two individuals who have been deeply involved in the peace process there.
