A new push for peace in Colombia: Process and pitfalls
A conversation between Diego Martínez, General Secretary of the Permanent Committee for the Defense of Human Rights in Colombia, and Elin Skaar, Senior Researcher, CMI
On September 23rd the Colombian President and FARC announced that an agreement to end the world's longest civil war had been reached. One of the most difficult items on their agenda was how to ensure justice for the thousands of victims of the 50 year long war.
With this agreement, the peace process that started in Oslo in October 2012 appears to near its end. The parties have set 23rd of March 2016 as the date for the signing of a final peace agreement.
Diego Martínez, one of the lawyers who contributed to drafting the agreement, will explain the agreement, the future process, and the possible pitfalls.
Elin Skaar, a specialist on transitional justice processes, will discuss the agreement in a comparative perspective to better understand the possibilities for it to succeed.
Coffee, juice and croissants will be served.
All are welcome!
The seminar is jointly organized by NorLARNet and the Center on Law & Social Transformation.
