Historias 13 – Abbey Steele on Colombia’s presidential elections
What do the results of yesterday’s presidential elections in Colombia reveal about this country attempting to exit decades of civil war?
Dr. Abbey Steele, an assistant professor in the department of political science at the University of Amsterdam, joined Dave and Steven to discuss the results in this hot take edition of Historias. Dr. Steele’s book Democracy and Displacement in Colombia’s Civil War (Cornell, 2017) explores the violent, tragic consequences of democratic elections and the forced migration of folk in the countryside.
