In 2016, Colombia made headlines around the world when the peace agreement between FARC and the government was signed. Although the majority of the colombian population rejected the agreement in a referendum, after some modifications the agreement was still able to put an end to a 52 year old armed conflict. Although peace has been accomplished on paper, there is a lot left to be done for the people of Colombia to feel peace. Reports continue showing increased killings of Colombian human rights leaders and the government´s slow implementation of the peace agreement has been heavily criticized.
On top if this, Colombia just faced its first presidential elections after the the agreement and many are worried about its impact on the ongoing peace process. Will the new president endanger the peace agreement?
