Abstract

This paper aims to propose a reading of (des) political order in Colombia, using as a theoretical source of Douglass North's reflections on the economic formation of political institutions. The contributions of this paper are very preliminary in nature and can better be understood taking into account two objectives of the research project: (1) Explain why, in Colombia there are very limited conditions for coordinating collective action, (2) what direct and indirect effects on the [des] political order has been armed conflict and civil war.
