    Peace in Colombia and the ELN

    02 November 2017. 

    The ceasefire announced between the Colombian government and the National Liberation Army (ELN), coming as the prior peace agreement with the much larger Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) is being implemented, has attracted both hope and scepticism. While a viable peace agreement with the ELN would put Colombia on a path to comprehensive peace, shepherding two major agreements would tax Bogotá’s capacity and the ELN has a history of reneging on commitments to non-violence.

    An end to more than 50 years of civil war(s) in Colombia

    10 July 2017.  Following the successful disarmament of the FARC, the UN Security Council unanimously voted, on 10th July, to establish a second mission in Colombia to monitor the political, economic and social reintegration of former combatants. In a country where the majority of the population has never experienced peace, there are concerns that FARC fighters may go on to join the forces of criminal gangs.
