How a Ceasefire in Colombia can work

This podcast by the Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA) looks at the obstacles in the way to a smooth post-conflict transition: other violent groups, demobilization challenges, lack of consultation with communities, international apathy, and the Colombian government’s historic inability to be present, protecting its citizens, in much of the national territory.

Colombia’s government and FARC guerrillas missed the March 23 deadline that they had set for themselves to finish a peace accord. Still, after 3 1/2 years of talks, an agreement on a full cessation of hostilities—a bilateral ceasefire—is likely in the near future. What would happen the day after that remains an open question.
