Note

The general consensus on the security-development nexus is that both

are key to achieving sustainable peace in war-torn societies. However,

this debate has largely taken place among international actors, with

little empirical evidence about how security and development relate

to each other or are even considered by local actors. The current

paper applies the security-development nexus to the case of land

restitution in Colombia. Following decades of internal armed conflict,

in 2012 the national government passed sweeping land restitution

legislation amid ongoing violence. Through in-depth interviews and

focus groups with multiple actors involved in this process, ranging

from international organisations to national government units, from

regional institutions to local communities, the paper analyses the

objectives, impact, challenges and opportunities for land restitution

related to security and development. Undermining peace-building,

a lack of coherence in the integration of security and development

priorities limits the extent to which either supports, or is promoted

by, land restitution efforts in Colombia. The paper concludes with

reflections on how the security-development nexus may promote

peace-building amid ongoing conflict.
