Reconstructing Colombia

Abstract [en]

After decades of internal conflict and several failed attempts to construct the bases

for sustainable peace, Colombia is once again undergoing peace negotiations. At

the same time, the Colombian government is revising its reconstruction policies to

address the impact of the protracted conflict. This paper discusses the country’s

new national policy on territorial consolidation and reconstruction within the

context of international reconstruction frameworks and the development-security

nexus debate. The research is based on a number of international reconstruction

policy frameworks, the latest yet unpublished Colombian documents concerning

the new policies and interviews conducted during March 2013 in Bogota as well

as in the regions of Makarena, Tolima and Montes de Maria, all three focus areas

for governmental reconstruction policies. The paper finds that while the PNCRT

definitely displays the beginning of a shift from an overwhelmingly securityoriented

policy towards one taking development into consideration, it still

displays a heavy emphasis on security issues and subordinates development

concerns to that overall goal. That imbalance translates into actor choices for

reconstruction policies and leaves much to be improved when comparing the

policy to the international reconstruction framework.
