A Compass for Colombia Policy

Title: A Compass for Colombia Policy

A Compass for Colombia Policy makes a persuasive case for a new U.S. strategy that would achieve U.S. policy goals while ending impunity and strengthening respect for human rights. It argues that “the most potent forces for change are within Colombia, and U.S. policy should consciously support and empower the human rights advocates, victims, judges, prosecutors, government oversight staff, journalists, legislators, union leaders, and Afro-Colombian, indigenous, and other community leaders who are the driving forces towards a more just society.”
