The Colombia Peace Process After Two Years

June 10, 2019 – June 11, 2019
Location: 1400 16th St NW, Washington, DC  


What can the Colombian peace accord implementation process teach us about supporting stabilization and peace processes around the world? Join us for a two-day seminar assessing the Colombia peace process after two years and the role of Notre Dame’s Peace Accords Matrix (PAM) program in monitoring and supporting implementation.

The program will include presentations by Colombian and United States experts on the current status of accord implementation, based on the PAM team’s April 2019 report.

Expert panelists will address transitional justice issues and victims’ rights, effective security guarantees and community protection, and land reform and integral rural development.
