Abstract

Deep down, is a combatant in a guerrilla group and in a paramilitary group the same kind of person? The evidence suggests that the two have different types of experiences in war and processes of socialization, and one would expect different behavior from the two after demobilization. In this study, we show that the members of guerrilla and paramilitary groups in Colombia are moved by clearly distinguishable motivations in their decisions to join their respective groups, in which contextual conditioning factors are mixed with different logics at the personal level. Our analysis is based on the systematic integration of relevant hypotheses from previous studies and a validation of their findings in a database of 1,485 ex-combatants Colombia.
