Demobilizing and Reintegrating Whom? Accounting for Diversity in DDR Processes: An Analysis of the Colombian case

Mia Schöb

This dissertation enquires how the Colombian Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) discourse addresses diversity among (ex-)combatants and how the DDR program reflects respective patterns of inclusion and exclusion. First, building on an extensive literature review and using a feminist approach to the securitization theory, I locate the Colombian case within global DDR trends and develop a diversity concept that goes beyond gender. Second, the critical discourse analysis of empirical data collected in Colombia finds a general de-securitization regarding all ex-ombatants, however with different discursive logics along the lines of diversity. Revealing a nuanced strategy of male de-securitization in Colombian DDR discourse, the findings contest previous studies on gender and DDR. At the same time, this work demonstrates the added value of a more holistic approach to diversity Descargar

Gender violence and sexual violence in Colombia

,

It is common to argue that gender violence and sexual violence are the same type of violence and both are strictly related to women. This paper develops a conceptual distinction between the similarities and differences between gender violence and sexual violence, with particular emphasis on the assertion that any human being can be a victim of both types of violence.
