Five years after Colombia's peace deal, the FARC is no longer on U.S. terrorist group lists, but Colombia's peace is far from secure. The peace agreement outlined plans to transform the FARC from an armed group into a peaceful political party created transitional justice institutions to address wartime atrocities and established programs for rural development. Five years later, Colombia has achieved several milestones in the FARC's reintegration into civil life - and there's less violence. But Colombia's peace agreement still polarizes politicians and the public, and implementation is slow. Both ex-combatants and noncombatants in many parts of the country are facing insecurity.
