Apr 24 Colombia: The Path to Peace with Amb. Pinzón

In November 2016, the Colombian Congress ratified a peace accord designed to end more than 50 years of civil war with the country's largest rebel group, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC. For his efforts to promote this agreement, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos was awarded the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize.

Join us for a luncheon presentation with Ambassador of Colombia Juan Carlos Pinzón, who will discuss the challenges that lie ahead for the effective implementation of the peace accord, and the ways this newly-achieved peace might affect Colombia's ongoing partnership with the United States on trade promotion, environmental protection, and regional security.
