A life in fighting: A conversation with former guerrillas and paramilitaries after leaving the Colombian conflict

Elda Mosquera and Rodrigo Pérez were rivals during the Colombian civil war – Elda was the leader of a guerrilla front, while Rodrigo was a paramilitary commander. In this online event, Elda and Rodrigo discuss how they joined the war; their experiences from opposing sides; why violence directed against civilians was so brutal; and how they managed to leave the war and carry out an extremely unexpected reconciliation process. The conversation will be in Spanish and simultaneously translated into English.
