Colombia’s FARC Demobilizes, but New Challenges Await

A conversation with Gimena Sánchez-Garzoli about a key moment in Colombia’s post-conflict

On June 20, 2017 the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia, FARC) ceased to be an armed group. But as WOLA Senior Associate Gimena Sánchez-Garzoli makes clear, the hard part awaits.

In a wide-ranging discussion about the current moment, Adam and Gimena discuss next steps in the FARC demobilization, the ominous appearance of armed groups in zones of previous guerrilla influence, recent social protests on the Pacific Coast, Colombia’s ability to implement its accord commitments, civil society’s role in making it happen, and our growing concerns about where the Trump administration is headed.
