Launch event of Crisis Group's report Trapped in Conflict: Reforming Military Strategy to Save Lives in Colombia, based on extensive fieldwork in different regions of Colombia and dozens of interviews with the military and communities. It will be held in Bogotá on Tuesday 27 September 2022 at 8:30 am.
In the report, Crisis Group analyses why military strategy in Colombia’s rural areas has failed to contain the conflicts that arose following the 2016 peace accord with its largest guerrilla movement (FARC). Crisis Group also proposes new civilian government leaders to prioritise community protection in rural areas and embrace new indicators for gauging the military’s success.
Panel: Martha Maya, Latin America Program Director at the Institute for Integrated Transitions (IFI); Elizabeth Dickinson, Crisis Group's Senior Analyst for Colombia; Ivan Briscoe, Crisis Group's Director for Latin America and the Caribbean; and Alberto Lara Losada, Deputy Minister for Defense and Security Policies, Ministry of Defense of Colombia (attendance cancelled).
The event will be held in Spanish.
