Colombia referendum: Voters reject Farc peace deal

News

“Voters in Colombia have rejected a landmark peace deal with Farc rebels in a shock referendum result, with 50.2% voting against it.” (BBC)

Catherine LeGrand, Department of History, McGill University

"The close ‘no’ vote in the plebiscite on the recent peace accord is a shock that plunges Colombia into deep political-institutional crisis.  What comes next is not clear.”—Catherine LeGrand

She’s interested in Latin American and Spanish Caribbean history of the 19th and 20th centuries, and social and cultural history as they relate to Latin America.
