Securing Peace in Colombia, Beyond the Failed Referendum


Date:  Monday 20, March, 2017

Presenter:   Scholar Dr. Michael Weintraub discusses the difficulties of securing peace in Colombia. On October 2, 2016, Colombian voters opted to reject the final agreement painstakingly negotiated between the government and the FARC, the country's largest and oldest rebel group. While the bargaining that followed ultimately resulted in a revised agreement, which was ratified by Congress and is in the process of being implemented, a number of questions remain.

Description:   This talk will confront these questions, drawing on original research and with a view towards delineating specific public policy alternatives for the short, medium, and long-term.
