CLAS is participating in a cooperative research project with the United States Institute of Peace, the Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, and the Colombian Jesuit Research Institute, CINEP, on the legacy of past peace negotiations and the prospect for peace in Colombia.
To mark the 10 year anniversary of the breakdown of negotiations with the FARC in San Vicente del Caguan on February 20, 2002, the project has published “10 Years After Caguán: Lessons for Peace in Colombia Today.”
CLAS Professor Marc Chernick, along with Virginia Bouvier of the U.S. Institute of Peace, spoke with Adam Isacson of the Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA) regarding the research project. To listen to the podcast on the WOLA websiste, click here.
