On Sept. 15, members of the Center’s Americas Program traveled to Bogotá, Colombia, for the launch of Trayectoria Institucional de los DDH en Colombia: Retos para Tiempos de Paz, a new publication produced by The Carter Center.
The book maps the country’s human rights network and will help in the implementation of the recent peace accord that ends the 50-year war between the government and the guerrilla organization known as the FARC. The book launch was co-sponsored by Paula Gaviria, the presidential adviser for human rights. Next, the Americas Program will work with the Gaviria’s office on an analysis of the human rights requirements of the peace accord.
