Greed or Social Injustice?: Competing Approaches to Conflict Resolution and Sustainable Peace in Colombia

Author:

Anders Rudqvist

Abstract

This article discusses the relationship between poverty and inequality
on the one hand and insurgency and armed conflict on the other, against the
recent historical background, the current political developments towards a
negotiated settlement, and the prevailing internal armed conflict in
Colombia. Particular attention will be given to the ongoing peace talks
between the Colombian government and the ELN (Ejército de Liberación
Nacional) guerrilla movement since these conversations and earlier peace
negotiation efforts, as well as earlier negotiations with FARC (Fuerzas
Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia), Colombia’s major insurgent
movement, may give insights with regard to the prospects and the social
and political prerequisites for serious peace negotiations and sustainable
peaceful development.
