Alex Diamond is a PhD student in the Department of Sociology and a Graduate Affiliate of the Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice. His research centers on the transition of Colombia in the wake of the 2016 peace process with the FARC (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia). One research project, with the support of the Agencia Colombiana para la Reincorporación y la Normalización, focuses on FARC recruitment pathways. A second analyzes the implementation of the peace accords, the construction of citizenship, and rural reform in regions that were under insurgent control.
