In 2016, an historic peace agreement ended more than five decades of armed conflict in Colombia. But that’s not the end of the peace process. Years of violence and mistrust have left scars. The challenge now is to rebuild relationships and ensure the peace agreement is understood, accepted and implemented across Colombian society.
After the peace agreement that ended 50 years of violent conflict, former combatants have laid down their weapons and created a political party, and new laws are in place to support the transition to peace. But Colombia still needs a more inclusive and cohesive peace process. We are working with people who are often kept out of the conversation – including indigenous women and women living abroad – to ensure their voices are heard.
