On Monday, February 3, 2020, please join us for a Talks @ Pulitzer, as Pulitzer Center grantee journalist Mariana Palau discusses her work covering the aftermath of the peace deal signed between the Colombian government and the FARC guerrilla group.

Palau's Pulitzer Center-supported project, "Colombia: After the Peace Deal," focuses on how the new Colombian president will honor the commitments made by his predecessor at a critical point in the peace deal's implementation, and what the risks are to the deal and to peace in the country moving forward. 

Palau writes for The Economist and has been published in Al Jazeera and The Village Voice
