Bachmann, Theresa (2022) Exclusion Despite Nominal Inclusion: A Critical Analysis of Participatory Development Programmes in Post‐War Colombia. Bulletin of Latin American Research, 42 (3). pp. 440-455. ISSN 1470-9856. (doi:10.1111/blar.13438) (KAR id:99350)

Abstract

Citizen participation takes centre stage in Colombia's 2016 peace agreement. Its practical implementation, however, has proven difficult. This case study examines targets and tactics of exclusion in participatory development programmes established under the peace accords. Drawing on qualitative data generated between 2021 and 2022 in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, this article argues that exclusion affects societal (sub‐)groups, organisations and communities as a whole and involves a large array of implicit‐elusive, direct‐explicit and coercive mechanisms. This matters for implementing inclusive peacebuilding more generally.
