dc.description.abstractThe intention of this thesis is to determine the warning signals and preventive actions to conduct the Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC) Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) process successfully. Although Colombia has experienced multiple DDR processes during its recent history, political violence continues to plague the country. After each process, Colombia notes the mutation of criminal structures, which have deployed their tentacles to other Latin American countries. Understanding the salient issues that led to the success or failure of DDR processes will aid the Government of Colombia (GOC) in continuing to face the process with FARC. The main argument of this thesis is that, in order for DDR to be successful, the GOC must take the ‘best practices’ of the DDR into account, not only in Colombia, but in other countries. Due to similarities with DDR experiences and the Colombian conflict, El Salvador and South Africa are the selected countries This thesis also will cover past Colombian experiences in DDR, beginning with the end of La Violencia and ending with the DDR of the United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia (AUC), as well as the individual demobilization programs for insurgents. An analysis of these cases will provide the best approaches for conducting a successful DDR process with FARC.en_US
