  • The civil war in Colombia is one of the longest civil wars in modern times and the sole remaining armed conflict in the Americas.

Juan Manuel Santos’ contributions:

  • Manuel Santos had initiated the negotiations with the guerrilla (rebel) group Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). These negotiations had culminated into a peace agreement between the Colombian government and the FARC guerrillas. However, in October 2016, the peace deal was rejected by a narrow majority by the Colombians when it was put to referendum.
