Translated title of the contribution: Extractive Violence and the Challenge of Reconciling with Nature after Colombia's Peace Agreement

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter explores the diverse and contradictory linkages between the expansion of Colombia's extractive economy and violence as well as the implications of this expansion for Colombia's ongoing peace process. It posits that an intensification of Colombia's armed conflict beginning in in the year 2000 was a necessary condition for the extractive economy to take root in the country, as it broaden state and shadow state territorial control and fragmented communities the might offer resistance. It also argues that the violence inherent in extractivism contradicts any peace agreement that maintains the exploitation of nature as part of its economic base. The conclusions offer some reflections on the characteristics that an environmental peace might take on in Colombia
