Abstract

Spanish Abstract: Centrada principalmente en el análisis de los procesos y las políticas públicas de reintegración social y económica, la literatura sobre Desarme, Desmovilización y Reintegración (DDR) poco se ha preocupado por abordar la reintegración política de excombatientes. Y cuando lo ha hecho, se ha referido de manera preponderante al tránsito de las organizaciones armadas a partidos políticos en un escenario de apertura democrática en el postconflicto. El presente artículo identifica los principales aportes y vacíos en el estado actual de la literatura sobre reintegración política. De esta manera, propone nuevas alternativas para abordar este tema, que transita por diferentes vías (institucionales y no institucionales), escenarios (local, regional, nacional) y niveles (individual y colectivo). Finalmente, presenta los retos que a nivel investigativo se abren para el caso colombiano, en un contexto donde el proceso de DDR con los excombatientes de las FARC-EP está en pleno desarrollo.

English Abstract: Focusing mainly on the analysis of the processes and public policies of social and economic reintegration, the literature on Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) has little concern for addressing the political reintegration of ex-combatants. And when it has done so, it has referred preponderantly to the transit of armed organizations to political parties in a scenario of democratic opening in the post-conflict. This article identifies the main contributions and gaps in the current state of the literature on political reintegration. In this way, it proposes new alternatives to address this issue, which goes through different paths (institutional and non-institutional), scenarios (local, regional, national) and levels (individual and collective). Finally, it presents the challenges that at the investigative level are open for the Colombian case, in a context where the DDR process with the ex-combatants of the FARC-EP is in full development.
