Tracking peace talks in real time
If you are interested in following the Colombian government peace talks with the FARC guerrilla, you shouldn’t miss DialogosPorLaPaz.
This website is dedicated to covering the unfolding negotiations between the government and the leftist guerrilla to end the 50 year old conflict between the rebels and the Colombian federal forces.
One of the most remarkable features of this project is how it incorporates the opinion of citizens around the dialogue, something that most of the traditional media outlets have been missing.
DialogosPorLaPaz also measures the sentiment and perceptions of the people around the peace talks through a quantitative index that includes opinions expressed through social media and a series of web-based polls hosted in the website.
FJP: Although it’s clear that DialogosPorLaPaz focuses on citizens, we think that it would be very useful if it had official information about where the peace talks stands. This would serve as a reference to what citizens are reporting and commenting.
