About the Authors
  • For decades a bitter civil war between the Colombia government and armed insurgent groups tore apart Colombian society. After protracted negotiations in Havana, a peace agreement was accepted by the Colombian government and the FARC rebel group in 2016. This volume will provide academics and practitioners throughout the world with critical analyses regarding what we know generally about the post-war peace building process and how this can be applied to the specifics of the Colombian case to assist in the design and implementation of post-war peace building programs and policies. This unique group of Colombian and international scholars comment on critical aspects of the peace process in Colombia, transitional justice mechanisms, the role of state and non-state actors at the national and local levels, and examine what the Colombian case reveals about traditional theories and approaches to peace and transitional justice.

    • Offers a comprehensive and diverse overview of peace and justice in Colombia
    • One of the first edited volumes on the aftermath of the Colombian government's war with the FARC and the peace treaty
    • The authors are international scholars who specialize in peacebuilding, transitional justice and Colombian politics
