The essays collected in this forum discuss the political geography of the recent Colombian Peace Agreements, which aim to put an end to one of the most long lasting armed conflicts in Latin America. Central to many arguments in this accord is the concept of “territorial peace”. From a range of different academic disciplines and perspectives, the authors of this Forum explore this concept, focusing on its genealogy during the period of peace negotiations (2012-2016), its importance in the content of the agreement, and some of its connected dimensions, in particular to notions of ethno-territorial, sex and gender issues, as well as formal party politics.
