Colombia : the long road to peace
- 22 March 2017
After more than fifty years of conflict, the peace agreement signed between Colombia and the FARC was rejected by referendum last September. However, the process continues after the ratification of a new treaty at the end of 2016 ; the road to peace seems difficult, the situation is complex and is not just about an armed conflict.
AEDH spoke to two Colombian collaborators who work in different areas : Sembrar supports and defends campesinos in a territory with a high land property component (agriculture, gold mining) and Fundepaz has an observatory for human rights violations in the South of the country, area with coke cultivation, production and smuggling of cocaine. They provide us with their respective analysis.
