24 November 2021 marks the fifth anniversary of the Colombian peace agreement.
Since 2016, thousands FARC-EP ex-combatants have laid down their arms and numerous institutions have been established to implement what has been called one of the most sophisticated peace agreements to date. Yet, violence is pervasive in many, primarily rural, communities, both in the form of FARC dissidents and other violent and criminal groups. In more urban areas, the last year was marked by massive demonstrations against the government, and in part also against the slow implementation of the peace agreement.

violence getting better, or worse, over time? Is violence directed more against

we do not know – and worse, what we do not know is likely to be systematically
different from what we do know.
