Launch: Legislative Oversight and Political Control of the Security and Defence Sector in Colombia

Since 2018, DCAF’s Latin America and the Caribbean Unit has supported the Colombian Congress in its efforts to strengthen its oversight of the security sector. DCAF offers members of the Colombian Congress and their advisors a platform for conferences and capacity-building workshops, and facilitates the exchange and promotion of good practices and lessons learned on security sector governance and oversight.

In collaboration with the University of Los Andes, we proudly announce the launch of our most recent publication on Legislative Oversight and Political Control of the Security and Defence Sector in Colombia (“Seguimiento Legislativo y Control Político al Sector de Seguridad y Defensa en Colombias. Estudio de Referencia”), authored by Mónica Pachón Buitrago, Asssociate Profressor from University of Los Andes.

We would like to invite you to join the launch by webinar in which Mónica Pachón Buitrago will present her findings. Her Excellency Yvonne Baumann, Swiss Ambassador to Colombia, will offer opening remarks and distinguished members of the Colombian Congress, government and academia will participate in a discussion on the critical role of congressional representatives in maintaining an effective and accountable security sector. 

Please note that this webinar will be in Spanish.
