Juan Forero is South America bureau chief for The Wall Street Journal, based in Bogotá. Prior to joining the Journal in 2014, he worked for National Public Radio, The Washington Post and The New York Times. Raised in the U.S. by immigrant parents from Colombia, Juan has spent the last 18 years in Latin America as a full-time correspondent where his keen understanding of both cultures informs his reporting. Much of his work in Colombia has entailed covering the rebel conflict, the cocaine trade, corruption and rights abuses, the peace process and a range of features of all stripes.

Juan will join half of the Colombia: The Future of Sustainable Peace expedition.
