Colombia: The Victims and Land Restitution Law: An Amnesty International analysis

This report focuses specifically on its provisions dealing with land restitution, an aspect of the Law that has provoked strong opposition both from sectors of society who fear it may jeopardize their control of lands seized illegally through human rights violations, and those seeking the return of lands they were forced to abandon.
