Colombia has seen relative success controlling the outbreak of COVID-19, providing a needed boost in citizens’ confidence in President Iván Duque. But that could be changing. This week, AQ‘s Editor-in-chief Brian Winter speaks with political analyst Laura Gil about his initial response, recent slip-ups, and why Colombia’s fragile peace process is “comatose.”
Laura Gil leads the consultancy Diálogos y Estrategias, and is director of the political analysis site La Línea del Medio.
Brian Winter is the editor-in-chief of Americas Quarterly.
