Professor Marc Chernick discusses the price and prize of peace in Colombia

Americas Now

The FARC’s peace deal with the government of Colombia was not reached without conflict.

Those against it worry it’s the acceptance of impunity. Those who support it say it is Colombia’s only road to lasting peace.

Marc Chernick is a professor of Practice of Conflict Resolution and Human rights at Georgetown University. He is also director of a joint program on conflict resolution between Georgetown and the University Los Andes in Colombia.

He sat with Elaine Reyes to discuss conflict, peace and the future of a Colombia in transition.
