This event will look at the latest negotiations which have led to the two sides having agreed to sign a final deal by March 2016.

The event will also take a particular focus on the agreement on victims after in recent negotiations the two sides agreed on a formula for transitional justice for conflict-related crimes such as kidnapping, murder, forced displacement, disappearance and torture.
