Chapter Chapter 5 in Analytical Narrative on Subnational Democracies in Colombia, 2019, pp 105-114 from Springer

Abstract: Abstract In this chapter, we present a critical reflection on the territorial implications, the impact on democracy, power games, the reconstruction of the concept of nation, and the transformations that civil society will have to assume, in connection with the peace process that took place between the Juan Manuel Santos government and the FARC guerrillas in Havana-Cuba. The reader will find a position couched in the academic debate and with perspective of the conjunctural events that have reaffirmed the need to undertake research that delves into the history of what actually happened and yet has been rendered virtually invisible for many years in the regions. The post-agreement scenario inherited from the peace negotiations, advanced between the government of Juan Manuel Santos and the FARC guerrilla, poses a future full of challenges for the Colombian political regime. Once the internal war has been redefined as the main structural problem of Colombian society, a whole series of threats emerged that were silent under a constant of more than sixty years of armed conflict. The debate about these old-new conflicts that afflict the Colombian democracy is the main object of study of this chapter.
