Colombia - From Drugs and War to Economic Upturn

Kolumbien - Aufschwung statt Drogen und Krieg

Under the leadership of President Juan Manuel Santos, the Colombian government has signed a historic peace accord with the rebels - an achievement for which the President was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Since then there has been rapid progress with disarmament and reintegration of former fighters. The horrors of decades of civil war in Colombia are gradually becoming part of the past: Medellin, once the most dangerous city in the world, is now a textbook example of how to create the culture and infrastructure of peace. The former drugs stronghold of Pablo Escobar has become a standard bearer in the struggle against violence and is driving the Colombian economic upswing. The city is creating meeting places and undertaking ambitious public construction projects in consultation with residents. Deprived areas that had fallen into disrepair have been developed with cable cars and moving staircases, and nursery schools, parks, libraries and museums have been built.
