The aim of Bogomolov's programme is to prove birational anabelian conjecturesfor function fields K|k of varieties of dimension ≥2 over algebraicallyclosed fields. The present article is concerned with the 1-dimensional case.While it is impossible to recover K|k from its absolute Galois group alone,we prove that it can be recovered from the pair (Aut(K|k),Aut(K|K)), consisting ofthe absolute Galois group of K and the larger group of field automorphisms fixing only the base field.
