The Kroc Institute of the University of Notre Dame, a member of the Peace Agreement verification mission in Colombia, revealed that the commitment signed between the Government of Juan Manuel Santos, on behalf of the State, and the former Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-People’s Army (FARC-EP), is only 30 percent complete.

From December 2020 to November 2021, only two percent of the provisions of the agreement were fulfilled, the institution stated.

It recommended in relation to this that issues such as the substitution of illicit crops, delivery of land to peasants, greater economic support for former FARC-EP combatants, prevention of assassinations of social leaders and former guerrillas in the process of reincorporation, which have increased in recent years, be reinforced.

The Institute pointed out that after analyzing 23,487 implementation events of the agreement, collected in 578 provisions, 18 topics and 70 subtopics, it was possible to conclude that progress can be measured in 37 percent, while the first implementation event is yet to take place.

If he wins the elections, the presidential candidate of the Historical Pact, Gustavo Petro, assures that peace is a new social contract to guarantee the fundamental rights of the people, in particular the victims.

As per his government program, the Historical Pact is peace, a great peace treaty for Colombia.
