Americas Program Launches Human Rights Book in Colombia (Spanish)

On Sept. 15, members of the 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.

El 15 de septiembre, el Programa de las Américas y la Consejería Presidencial para los Derechos Humanos (CPDDHH), con el apoyo de la CAF, lanzó su estudio de derechos humanos en Colombia “Trayectoria Institucional de los DDHH en Colombia: Retos para Tiempos de Paz,” con el objetivo de plantear los retos que el marco institucional de derechos humanos va a enfrentar con la implementación de los acuerdos de La Habana. El evento se realizó en Bogotá, Colombia.
