Security in a post-FARC Colombia

Report summary

The announcement of a bilateral ceasefire on 23 June between Colombia's Revolutionary Armed Forces (FARC) and the government suggests that a peace accord is imminent. The rebel group has long terrorised civilians while also targeting commercial activities including mining, agricultural industries and oil & gas. The FARC’s historical stronghold has been  in southwestern Colombia and a peace deal should open up new areas of the Oriente-Putumayo Basin for exploration and development, but there are some caveats in the near term.
