Peace in Colombia is everybody’s business

There is not a great deal of positive news in the world today. And yet, one of the most positive developments concerning peace and conflict has gone largely unreported. Last month, the world’s longest running conflict came one giant step closer to its end with the signing of the permanent ceasefire between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). While the rest of the world, and the UK more specifically, woke to the shock news of Brexit, Colombians all over, starting with myself, rejoiced with the unprecedented announcement.

The year for peace in Colombia?

I hate turbulence during flights. My palms start sweating, my heart is pounding, and no matter how much I remind myself that it’s ok, I still can’t shake the feeling off. That's exactly how I feel now about the peace process in Colombia. It’s turbulent times. The peace negotiation between the government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) will soon be reaching the deadline of 23 March 2016 that Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos had announced a few months back.
