Juan Manuel Santos Calderón

Juan Manuel Santos Calderón is the 32nd and current President of Colombia and sole recipient of the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize, awarded for his resolute efforts to bring the country's more than 50-year-long civil war to an end.

On October 7, 2016, Santos was announced as the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, for his efforts negotiating a peace treaty with the guerillas in the country, despite the unsuccessful referendum held over the deal. The Colombian government and the FARC signed a revised peace deal on November 24 and sent it to Congress for ratification instead of conducting a second referendum. Both houses of Congress ratified the revised peace accord on November 29–30, 2016, thus marking an end to the conflict.
