Representatives from church related and civil society organizations in Colombia will share their perspectives regarding the peace process in the country, their existing and future role to support the implementation of the peace accords and proposals regarding the verification of the ceasefire agreement between the Government of Colombia and the FARC, as well as un- armed protection in the territories.

They will share the challenges to the implementation of the peace agreements and a proposal to extend the scope of the recently approved United Nations Security Council Resolution 2261 to “set up a UN political mission in Colombia, approving a team of international observers to monitor disarmament.”

This event is promoted by the WCC and Caritas Internationalis. It is co-sponsored by ACT Alliance, the Lutheran World Federation, Mennonite Central Committee, Presbyterian Church USA.
