Abstract

VILLA, Rafael Duarte  and  VIANA, Manuela Trindade. Internationalization of the Colombian conflict by the involvement of external actors: action by the OAS in demobilizing paramilitary groups in Colombia. Dados [online]. 2012, vol.55, n.2, pp. 403-445. ISSN 0011-5258.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0011-52582012000200005.

This paper discusses the effects of the internationalization of the Colombian armed conflict, understood as the participation of foreign actors in programs regarding the resolution of the conflict. Through an analysis of the involvement of multilateral and state actors, the authors argue that this process involved the dilemma between unilateralism and multilateralism. The empirical analysis is centered on the intervention of conflict mediation mechanisms from the Organization of American States (OAS), specifically the Mission to Support the Peace Process (MAPP/OAS), whose scope is aimed at demobilizing paramilitary groups in Colombia.

Keywords : Colombian conflict; MAPP; OAS; internationalization.
