By WOLA. This week Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos is expected to meet with U.S. President Barack Obama to promote the peace process and mark the 15th anniversary of Plan Colombia, a U.S. assistance package that was accompanied by grave human rights abuses on the ground since it started in 2000. Ahead of their meeting, the Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA) has prepared an interactive data presentation showcasing the lessons of Plan Colombia, and outlining the challenges ahead of a post-conflict Colombia.

WOLA will be monitoring the visit closely, and releasing a series of analysis and commentary about the ongoing Colombian peace process, the current human rights situation on the ground, and rumors that a robust new U.S. aid package to Colombia will be announced in the coming days.
