Undivided and armed conflict: analysis of the incidence of land tenure in dispossession and displacement in Santa Marta and Dibulla.

Project: Research Project

Project Details


There is extensive international literature that explains the relationship between rural property and the use of violence in armed conflicts.

For Boone (2007) in agrarian societies, the policies and regulation of property rights affect the calculation of the actors to determine if they resort to violence.

In turn, in scenarios of armed conflict, both the land market and the regulation of land property rights are distorted. It is a two-way relationship.

According to Fitzpatrick et al. (2012), historically cycles of violence and displacement create endemic disputes over land possession and the national conflict is an example of this.
