Colombia Peace Forum to Focus on Implementation of Agreement #62 on the Disappeared

April 21, 2016

This Friday, April 22, at the U.S. Institute of Peace in Washington, we will take an in-depth look at the status of the agreement on disappearances reached by the Government of Colombia and the FARC-EP in Havana last October 17, 2016.  The Colombia Peace Forum event will be co-sponsored with the Latin America Working Group Education Fund.  Speakers will include:

  • Diana Arango, Executive Director, independent forensic group, Equitas
  • Ulianov Franco, Executive Director, Familiares Colombia
  • Carlos Eduardo Valdés, General Director, National Institute of Legal Medicine
  • Christoph Harnisch, Head of Delegation, Colombia, International Committee of the Red Cross (via Skype)

I will be moderating the event, and my colleague, Lisa Haugaard, Executive Director of the Latin America Working Group Education Fund, will provide commentary.
