Colombia Elections Outlook: Challenges for the Next Administration
Join AS/COA on May 9 as experts discuss what's in store for Colombia in 2018 and beyond.
Colombians head to the polls on May 27 to pick a new president. Regardless of who wins the likely runoff in June, though, the incoming administration will face a unique period in the country's history. The peace deal with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) has granted much needed stability, however, its implementation remains a challenge, and the country is deeply polarized. Panelists will analyze the main economic, security, and political challenges the new government will need to confront, taking into consideration the platforms of each presidential candidate. Join a group of experts as they discuss the country’s outlook in 2018 and beyond.
