swissnex Brazil has the honor to host Christoph Harnisch, Head of the ICRC (International Committee of the Red Cross) delegation in Colombia, to discuss the humanitarian situation in Colombia, following the signature of a peace deal between the FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia) and the Colombian government. The talk will be held shortly after the Colombian population will vote on the referendum for the peace deal.

The peace deal is the result of four years of negotiation and was hoped to put and end to a war that has been going on for 52 years. Christoph Harnisch has been accompanying the humanitarian situation in Colombia as head of the ICRC delegation since August 2014. However, his engagement with the ICRC dates back to 1984, a period during which he has worked both in the ICRC headquarters in Geneva and on international field missions.

A palestra acontecerá logo depois da população colombiana votar no referendo popular referente ao acordo de paz.

O acordo de paz é resultado de quatro anos de negociações, como objetivo de pôr fim aos 52 anos de guerra.
