Conclusion: Colombia and the Road to Peace

  • Johanna Higgs


This chapter will explore the key findings of my research and summarise what conclusions I have made from my research. I review the key themes that emerged and explore the primary factors that ultimately lead to the militarisation of children in Colombia. I look at how Colombia is moving into a peace process and what future challenges they could face in keeping children out of armed conflict. I make a number of recommendations for future research and what could come next for improving the lives of children who become involved in war.
