The Peace Process in Colombia

10 Août 2016  9h00 – 11h30

The peace talks in Havana between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia People’s Army (FARC) is a positive sign that the country’s main armed actors are serious about ending the countries 50 year war. On March 30th 2016 peace talks with The National Liberation Army (ELN) were made public after more than two years of secret negotiations. In this peace process discussion with the ELN there is an effort to center civil society participation in the talks.
These talks have the final aim of ending the more than five decades of armed conflict. However, the end of the armed conflict does not necessarily mean an end to violence, displacement, inequality, impunity, and militarization which are at the root of the problem in Colombia. the event will seek to raise awareness in the mainstream media and analyse the peace process dialogue in Havana, the strengths and weakness of the accords and its limitations and impacts on the structural problems faced by Colombians.
