Event Summary This event has passed.

Labor issues continue to play a significant role both in Colombia’s post-conflict development plans and in its bilateral relations with the United States. Since the signing of a Labor Action Plan with the United States in 2011, the country has striven to improve workers’ rights—although several pressing items remain on the agenda, including those raised by Colombia’s ongoing accession to the OECD. 

For this open conversation on labor in Colombia, the bilateral labor agenda with the United States, and labor policy’s role in the post-conflict, the Dialogue is pleased to welcome Griselda Restrepo, Colombia’s minister of labor and a former national senator and member of congress.
