Will Colombia have peace at last? | Miami Herald
By Louise Arbour, Crisis Group’s President and CEO

Peace negotiations between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) will start in Norway next week. The talks will continue in Cuba and may be extended to include another guerrilla group, the National Liberation Army (ELN).
