Abstract

The signature of the revisted Peace Agreement by the Colombian Government and FARC and its ratification by the Colombian Congress in November 2016 not only marked a promising stage in the resolution of the armed conflict, but also a challenging one in the sustainability of
multilateral peacebuilding efforts. Drawing on qualitative framing analysis, this article explores whether differing frames projected by the
USA and the EU shaped cooperative or competitive efforts for peace between the signature of the revised Peace Agreement and the forming of the new Colombian Government of President Ivan Duque by December 2018. The results highlight competitive priorities of the USA and the EU regarding the agreement. While the USA made the Peace
Agreement a function of the war against drugs, the EU fundamentally maintained its commitment with the implementation of the agreement.
