A brilliant in depth article on Colombia that traces the violent upheavals brought on by internal conflict, the subsequent displacement of rural folk and the socio-political-economic impact on its cities by Patricia Weiss Fagen, brought to you courtesy Norwegian Peace Building Resource Centre (NOREF). A must read for those attempting to understand the complexities of life in Colombia, a country struggling to rise above internal conflict to provide humanitarian aid and rehabilitation for millions of its internally displaced people and other victims of the battle between government forces and the FARC in the wake of cessation of hostilities.
