Last year’s peace accords between the government of Colombia and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) marked a historic turning point in Colombia’s more than fifty-year conflict. Much media attention was given to the reintegration of the former guerillas, the controversial transitional justice agreement, and the Nobel peace prize awarded to President Santos. But who pays for peace? 

Please join The Pearson Institute in welcoming Ximena Cadena, former Deputy Minister General in the Colombian Ministry of Finance, for a lecture on the financial components of conflict resolution. From the disarmament, demobilization and reintegration of FARC combatants to development investment in Colombia’s neglected rural regions, Cadena will discuss the ins and outs of her former agency’s role in financing Colombia’s peace. 

This event is part of The Pearson Institute's Lunch and Learn series.
