Abstract

The main objective of this research is to identify the relationships between the illegal economy of gold mining, the illegal armed actors that intervene in these scenarios, and the humanitarian consequences and impacts that they generate on the population in terms of Human Rights and IHL in the new risk scenarios posed by the post-agreement.
In this way, the study is limited to the illegal exploitation of gold, analyzed from a value chain perspective, which implies tracking the different phases of economic activity and the generation of value in the mineral, from exploitation to its commercialization in international markets, a process through which this illegal economy is capitalized. Emphasis is placed on the dynamics of the dissidents of the FARC-EP, the ELN and the armed groups after the self-defense108 in the departments of Antioquia, Bolívar, Chocó, Valle del Cauca, Cauca and Nariño. For comparative purposes, a municipality of Santander was also chosen where illegal armed groups do not operate, but illegal gold mining does occur. However, the sample includes 20 municipalities in these departments where primary information was collected and 204 in the entire national territory, for which secondary information was collected. For this, a qualitative-quantitative approach is taken.
