Colombia: Peace at Any Price?

Policy Forum 
March 30, 2016 

4:00PM to 5:30PM

ADD TO CALENDAR

Hayek Auditorium 
Featuring José Miguel Vivanco, Executive Director, Americas Division, Human Rights Watch; and Adam Isacson, Senior Associate for Regional Security Policy, Washington Office on Latin America; moderated by Juan Carlos Hidalgo, Policy Analyst on Latin America, Center for Global Liberty and Prosperity, Cato Institute. 
The Cato Policy Forum was initially scheduled for March 15 at noon but has been rescheduled to the new date and time listed above.
Colombia’s half-century war with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) has cost the lives of hundreds of thousands of people and remains Latin America’s longest armed conflict. After more than three years of talks, the Colombian government and the guerrillas are nearing a self-imposed deadline for the completion of peace negotiations. Despite the support that the peace process enjoys outside Colombia, key provisions already agreed to are leading many to reject the agreement. José Miguel Vivanco will explain why the lack of meaningful accountability for crimes against humanity committed by both parties contravenes international law, delegitimizes the negotiations, and undermines the chance for sustainable peace. Adam Isacson will make the case in favor of the agreement.
