Summary
"Toward Greater Peace and Security in Colombia, recommends that the U.S. government should respond to the deteriorating situation by implementing a four-point strategy: assist in the professionalization of the country's military forces; curtail widespread human rights abuses; strengthen political, judicial, and social reform efforts; and restore the economy. The Task Force urges a longer-term policy that goes beyond the emphasis on fighting drugs reflected in the recent $1.3 billion aid package to Colombia. The country's problems are more complex and stem from the state's inability to protect its citizens. While the responsibility for finding a solution depends on the Colombians, the United States and the international community can and must assist the troubled country in its struggle for peace." "A comprehensive U.S. policy that brings together military, political, and socioeconomic dimensions can best contribute to strengthening the legitimacy and effectiveness of the Colombian government, and to supporting its people in their fight for democracy."--BOOK JACKET
