Welcome to our next podcast series, in which we explore the history of Colombia‘s internal armed conflict, and how the armed struggle with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, the FARC-EP, was finally brought to an end in 2016 by the landmark peace agreement between the government of President Juan Manuel Santos and the former guerilla group.

On 27 May 2018, Colombia goes to the polls to elect a new president.  Santos is coming to the end of his second term and so out of the running. The big question is whether Santos’ successor will support the ongoing peace process, which faces a number of challenges.  Political opposition threatens the implementation of the complex series of peace accords, and the continuing conflict with the National Liberation Army (ELN) could undermine the fragile peace achieved to date.
