Abstract:

Colombia has not been at peace during the last century. It has been fighting against different forms of violence, including communism, guerrilla warfare, drug trafficking, self-defense groups, criminal bands, and others. During the last decade, there have been many changes in the security environment of the country. However, despite significant efforts by the Government and Armed Forces, Colombia has not achieved the desired peace. This project will examine some of the reasons why Colombia has had such difficulty achieving its goal of peace, and will offer solutions for obtaining the desired endstate in the future.
