Resumen

Oliver P. Richmond, Sandra Pogodda y Jasmin Ramović 2016.Este capítulo explora las lógicas de las prácticas de construcción de la paz en Sudamérica, delineando las características de la región a este respecto. La investigación se centra especialmente en el caso de Colombia y en la región de Montes de María, situada en la costa atlántica de Colombia. En el capítulo se analizan inicialmente los patrones de transformación de conflictos en la región de América del Sur y, posteriormente, se analiza cómo se ha impugnado la paz a nivel local en Colombia. Es significativo que el estudio de caso de Colombia haya sido seleccionado debido a dos factores primordiales. En primer lugar, Colombia sigue siendo el único país de América del Sur que vive actualmente un conflicto armado, lo que sugiere que representa, en el mejor de los casos, una excepción regional o, en el peor, una aberración. Si bien todos los demás conflictos armados han llegado a su fin y todos los regímenes autoritarios han pasado por transiciones políticas, Colombia sigue experimentando una violencia política generalizada ejercida por diversos grupos armados ilegales. En segundo lugar, Colombia representa el caso más pronunciado de iniciativas de construcción de la paz a nivel local (LPBIs) que han demostrado tener un impacto importante, aunque limitado, sobre las causas y consecuencias del conflicto armado, a pesar de la presencia de políticas de paz liberales convencionales. En consecuencia, Colombia se dirige a procesos más amplios dentro de la región, pero se diferencia de ellos, en los que las movilizaciones de la sociedad civil fueron fundamentales no sólo para dar forma a la transición de un gobierno autoritario, como en Chile y Argentina, sino también para que los actores de la sociedad civil asumieran un papel formal en las negociaciones de paz, como en el caso de Guatemala.

While all other armed conflicts have come to a close and all authoritarian regimes have eventually undergone political transitions, Colombia is still experiencing widespread political violence wielded by diverse illegal armed groups. Second, Colombia represents the most pronounced case of local-level peacebuilding initiatives (LPBIs) being proven to have an important, albeit limited, impact upon the causes and consequences of armed conflict, in spite of the presence of conventional liberal peace politics. Consequently, Colombia speaks to, yet differs from, broader processes within the region, where civil society mobilizations were critical not only in shaping transition from authoritarian rule, such as in Chile and Argentina, but also where civil society actors assumed a formal role in peace negotiations, such as the case of Guatemala.",
