Understanding Colombia’s Armed Conflict: A Series for Colombia Reports

1504388_10152775220162408_1621929184215240779_oI recently wrote a five-article series for Colombia Reports on understanding the armed conflict in Colombia. Each article examined a different aspect of the dynamics of Colombian history and society which have played some role in the current violence between the leftist rebels, right-wing paramilitaries, and the armed forces.

Among the causes, I examined the history of political exclusion, inequality, and the weak/corrupt state institutions.

Other factors which have aggravated the situation have been drug trafficking and international actors, including the United States and multinational corporations.
