Launch of the Kroc Institute’s Fifth Comprehensive Report on Colombian Peace Accord Implementation
In 2020, the Colombian Peace Agreement faced many challenges, including the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic; intensifying violent confrontations in some territories; and continuous attacks against the life and integrity of social leaders, human right defenders, and individuals in the process of reincorporation. However, even in the midst of these challenges, the fourth year of implementation also brought new opportunities in the territories where numerous leaders formulated municipal and departmental development plans in line with the Final Agreement. Implementation of the Agreement has continued, and it is more important than ever to build ownership in the peace process among Colombian citizens and institutions across the country.
The Kroc Institute’s fifth comprehensive report, covering the period from December 2019 through November 2020, provides a quantitative and qualitative overview of the status of Agreement implementation; presents a comparative analysis to enrich dialogue around this process; highlights milestones achieved and obstacles faced; and identifies key opportunities for continuing to advance toward comprehensive peace accord implementation.
