Peace in Colombia: Problems and Prospects in Rural Antioquia
Guest Speaker: Zachary Krahmer, Photographer and Filmmaker
Description: The Colombian National Government and the Armed
Revolutionary Forces of Colombia (FARC-EP) ratified a final peace agreement 22
months ago, outlining a timeline for demobilization, transitional justice, and
social/economic reintegration of 7,000 armed combatants, formally ending the
53-year civil war. A failure by the government to properly implement the
accords is threatening to derail the peace process in rural areas of the
country. Zachary spent several months throughout Ituango in 2016 and 2017,
completing a variety of journalism and photography projects related to the
demobilization process. He will discuss his work and contextualize the return
of armed actors and dissident groups in the region.
