Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article aims to contribute to the analysis of peace agreements in Colombia through a focus on the process of reintegration of former guerrillas into national society. We use applied research, an anthropological gaze, and an ethnographic methodology to understand an extremely critical process: the implementation of the Havana Peace Agreements between the Colombian State and the Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia - Ejército del Pueblo (FARC-EP).1 We attempt to connect the shortterm circumstances experienced at the local level with the long-term perception of this political and social landscape. Relating time and space allow us to broaden our perspective on addressing peace.
