Peace in the pandemic and the future: Angelika Rettberg in the last episode of the CAPAZ series

Peace in the pandemic and the future: Angelika Rettberg in the last episode of the CAPAZ series


Angelica Rettberg, Professor of Political Science at Universidad de los Andes, is our guest in this twelfth episode, the last in the series of CAPAZ video-columns about peace in Colombia in times of coronavirus.

Episode 12 – La paz, ahora más que nunca (in Spanish)

Professor Rettberg will discuss what, in her opinion, have been some of the successes and other “red flags” of the implementation of the peace agreements signed in Colombia, in 2016. The issues she talks about have been brought to light, to a great extent, by the circumstances imposed by the pandemic.

But the discussion does not stop there: in the discussion on possible future perspectives, Professor Rettberg considers it necessary to address issues such as the social and political role of former FARC-EP combatants and how Colombian society assumes their reintegration and reincorporation; Venezuelan migration and the border situation; and, of course, relations with the ELN guerrilla.

Between April and July 2020, CAPAZ presented twelve weekly audio-visual discussions on peace in times of COVID-19. The last episode of the “Peace, now more than ever” series is just as revealing—or indeed more so—as the previous episodes. We would be delighted to know that this audio-visual material is being used for consultation and reflection on the peace agenda in Colombia.

All the episodes of the CAPAZ web video-column: “Peace, now more than ever” are available through the Institute’s Youtube and Instagram channels.
