Some Structural Elements for Understanding the Social Uprising in Colombia An article by

An article by Martha Bernal and Ilich Ortiz, 2022

This article seeks to understand the mass generalized discontent that occurred in Colombia in 2021 by situating it in light of the social and economic effects of the implementation of neoliberal and extractivist policies in recent decades. Those policies have generated inequality, violence, displacement, and dispossession of territories, all within the context of the political regime’s chronic inability to respond to social demands.

Coordinated by Alioscia Castronovo and Natalia Hernandez Fajardo
