Chapter Chapter 6 in Analytical Narrative on Subnational Democracies in Colombia, 2019, pp 115-117 from Springer

Abstract: Abstract The analysis offered in this book throws a number of critical and suggestive conclusions about the reality of the Colombian sociopolitical scenario, all this from the specific study of a very interesting regional context: The Colombian Pacific. However, although the crux of this book has pointed to an analysis whose spatial delimitation is expressed, there is no doubt that its results are a point of reference to extend the analysis to other regions in order to understand the regional geopolitics in Colombia and its institutional equilibriums. In this regard, the book Analytical Narrative on Democracies in Colombia. Clientelism, government and public policy in the Pacific region, suggests, through different methodological exercises, that any approach to the study of the Colombian political and social context inevitably places us in a scenario plagued by multiple and varied contradictions. Although it is true that one of the most outstanding characteristics of the Colombian historical evolution has been the structural presence of intense dynamics and circles of violence, the coexistence of this nefarious scenario with one of the democratic traditions, at least formally, is especially suggestive and (unifying and non-conflicting) representative of the whole of Latin America. There is no doubt that the analytical intention of the team of researchers has been the construction of a theoretical sustenance that is consistent with the narrative and the empirical evidence. The conceptual management that accompanies the argumentative strategy serves as the basis for the development of a coherent work. Unquestionably, this is an initial/a primary contribution of scientific-interdisciplinary order to the study of the structural causes of the degradation of the state model in the Pacific and, of course, in a general way in Colombia. It only remains to continue advancing in the next installment of the investigative process in which, very pertinently, an excellent and recognized group of academics has embarked.
