Tuesday, November 22, 2016, 12:00pm to 2:00pm


CGIS South, S-216, 1730 Cambridge Street


Speaker: Robert Karl, Assistant Professor of History, Princeton University; Santander Visiting Scholar, DRCLAS

From land restitution to the role of victims’ voices in reconciliation, Colombia’s ongoing peace process has its parallels in largely forgotten events that transpired more than a half-century ago. This talk examines what Colombian history can – and cannot – tell us about the shape of Colombia’s contemporary conflict and the prospects for a stable and durable peace.
