May 29, 2015
FARC negotiator Pablo Catatumbo said that the recent deadly army raid represented a “step back,” but that the progress made since Colombia’s peace process talks began in 2012 should not be “thrown overboard.” So negotiations continue in spite of tensions and setbacks. A new survey conducted by researchers from Georgia State University seeks to inform the process by providing information on public opinion regarding transitional justice, trust, and overall support for negotiations. One of the researchers, and a Wilson Center Fellow provide context on the findings and their relevance to ongoing attempts to reach an agreement.
