This year Colombia is commemorating 200 years of its independent political life. From the Colombian Embassy, Ricardo Urdaneta, lawyer, founder of Urdaneta Holguín Abogados and a national arbitrator in Colombia, will discuss the process of democracy building in Colombia. He will discuss key points that Colombia had to undergo to achieve his independence, such as the consolidation of democracy, institution-building, implementation of public policies, challenges related to violence and internal conflicts, the dialogues and peace negotiations among others. Moreover, how has this lead to Colombia to the challenges it faces today? Subjects such as the massive migration from Venezuela, the peace agreements of the former guerrilla FARC, and overcoming violence are just a few that the lecturer will touch upon.
