Abstract

This work constitutes the first part of a project that identifies three components the conflict and its regional impact: (a) the relevance of geography in the political transformations resulting from the war for local power, (b) the structure financial underpinning training and maintenance of irregular armies within of a given region, (c) correlations that distinguish strategic and / or assimilate groups fighting for territorial dominance. Restrict the search to the first component. Further work needs to teach the correlations between the financing of the conflict, geography and regional identities. It also needs a joint work on the impact it has had the armed conflict in Colombia's political geography.
