Challenges and Prospects for "Total Peace" in Colombia

This panel is the first event in the UK to take stock of the current state of the peace process(es) in Colombia, the “total peace” policy of President Gustavo Petro, and the challenges and opportunities of the current moment. Bringing together academics and practitioners, we will explore the peace talks between the government and the ELN guerrilla group, the legal framework created to negotiate with illegal armed groups, implementation of the 2016 peace accord with the FARC, and overall, the developments in peacebuilding since Petro took power last August and prospects for the future.
