Publication date: 
Accord issue: 

Violent conflict in Colombia has prompted nearly 25 years of efforts to find a peaceful solution, involving extensive social mobilisation.

He suggests that the collection of articles in this Accord issue offers both hope and practical suggestions in the search for a negotiated, participatory resolution of the conflict.
