Abstract

Culminating civil conflicts is difficult, particularly when the conflict involves political perspectives. Many countries decide to negotiate with the parties involve in order to come to and end. This paper seeks to establish a better scholarly understanding about the peace process in Colombia, specifically, the referendum that took place in October, 2016 which results turned out negative. These results will be compared to similar cases in North Ireland and Africa, where atrocious crimes were committed and a significant amount of human right were violated. This paper will be examining the decision-making on the negotiations between FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia) and the government. Farther exploring whether the agreements on the referendum pass the “point of not return” that led the population of Colombia to have a negative response. Thus, this article will offer significantly more explanatory insight on the referendum outcomes focusing on the “point of not return” perspective.
