The Peace Process in Colombia with the Autodefensas Unidas de Colombia-AUC #13
In July 2003, the government of President Álvaro Uribe took the unprecedented step of opening formal peace talks with the AUC. Although close to 900 paramilitary fighters demobilized last year, issues such as paramilitary involvement in drug trafficking and accountability for human rights abuses have raised controversy in Colombia and abroad. This Report is the compilation of papers presented for a conference on June 28, 2004 that explored key issues in the Government-AUC peace talks, the prospects for an eventual negotiated settlement, and the key challenges ahead.
