Unpeaceful Peace: Colombia

Colombia has faced unrelenting conflict between the State, paramilitaries and guerrilla groups for over 50 years. In 2016, a final agreement was reached between the State and FARC (the biggest revolutionary group). But instead of a simple switch from a state of civil war to a state of post-conflict, violence still prevails across Colombia. The podcast will focus on each perpetrating group that contributes to these continuities of violence, and their impact on the Nasa people, in particular.
