During his February 2016 visit to the United States, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos’ first public event was hosted by the Woodrow Wilson Center, in partnership with the Inter-American Dialogue, Atlantic Council, Council of the Americas, and the U.S. Institute of Peace. The session focused on a range of issues with a particular focus on the ongoing peace negotiations. Afterward, we asked Latin American Program Director, Cynthia Arnson, to share her reactions.
