“We believe there are multiple armed conflicts”: Kyle Johnson on security in Colombia *

Kyle Johnson, Adam Isacson and Matthew Bocanumenth

19/Enero/2022

 

Colombia had a tumultuous start to 2022, as violence broke out in the northeastern department of Arauca, near the Venezuelan border, killing dozens. The armed groups involved are ELN guerrillas and a faction of ex-FARC guerrillas—but the actors are different elsewhere in the country. Colombia’s persistent armed-group violence has become ever more confused, fragmented, and localized, more than five years after a historic peace accord.

To make sense of the situation, Director for Defense Oversight Adam Isacson and Program Assistant Matthew Bocanumenth spoke with Kyle Johnson, an analyst and co-founder of the Bogotá-based Conflict Responses Foundation, a research organization that performs extensive fieldwork in conflict-affected territories.

With a nuanced but clear presentation, Johnson answers our many questions and helps make sense of this complex, troubling moment for security and governance throughout rural Colombia.

The way forward, Johnson argues, goes through negotiations and a renewed effort to implement the 2016 peace accord, especially its governance and rural development provisions. It requires abandoning the longtime focus on meeting eradication targets and taking down the leaders of what are now very decentralized armed and criminal groups.

Tristemente en este país Colombia, l@s lideres@s Sufrimos persecución por tener una convicción diferente ante tantos problemas de contaminación en nuestras fuentes hídricas, a eso le sumamos los hechos de corrupción en diversas áreas y contratos. Nadie sabe , nadie responde solo te dicen debes tener más cuidado y aléjate de esas situaciones que te causan daño.
