Colombia: When the guns go silent

During the Colombian peace negotiations, journalist Natalia Orozco was granted unprecedented access to the negotiation teams of each side, including FARC leader Timoleon Jimenez and President Santos. ‘Colombia: When the Guns Go Silent’ is both a unique chronicle of the negotiations and a personal story. How can peace be maintained after so many decades of war? How do you punish the guilty without prolonging the conflict?
