Colombians go to the polls on October 25 to elect governors and mayors at a pivotal moment. The peace process is about to enter its fourth year and the socioeconomic gains over the past decade must now be consolidated. Is the Colombian miracle here to stay, and what are the lessons for it and for other countries?

Join the Atlantic Council's Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center at an event with business and political leaders with their hands on the pulse of the country and where it is going. This event comes days before the Atlantic Council honors President Juan Manuel Santos with its Global Citizen Award. It will also preview our forthcoming report, written by Nonresident Senior Colombia Fellow Miguel Silva.
