Shaping Peacebuilding in Colombia

During the second half of the 20th century, Colombia suffered extreme levels of political violence. This book explores the involvement of the international community in peacekeeping efforts in Colombia since 1998. In particular, it examines how the interventions were framed in order to promote and sustain their involvement and questions whether these frames reflected the true reality within Colombia

The book focuses on key donors, including USA, the EU, Canada, Sweden and the UK, as well as multinational actors, such as the UN and the World Bank, to demonstrate how their framing of local issues for international consumption can have real world implications for peacekeeping efforts on the ground.
