Juan Manuel Santos
Juan Manuel Santos, the Colombian President, has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2016 for his resolute efforts to bring the country’s more than 50-year-long civil war to an end, a war that has cost the lives of at least 220 000 Colombians and displaced close to 6 million people. The award should also be seen as a tribute to the Colombian people who, despite great hardships and abuses, have not given up hope of a just peace and to all the parties who have contributed to the peace process.
