Abstract

Through a problematizing, critical and open perspective this study aims to answer the question “to what extent can we understand the political system in Colombia as democratic?” The main discussion has a focus on the consequences of the negative incidents and what they do with the substance and meaning of democracy, and the development of the internal conflict in Colombia. How does the government act to determine the continuous conflict, and is it the right obligations? This study also portrays a possible dimension of democracy and its substantial values, and how to measure it in Colombia. (Less)
