In/security in Colombia

This chapter highlights how the writing of in/security discloses several notions of peaces that are constituted and constitutive of political identities and imaginaries in the Colombian context. By recognising the danger of narco-terrorism as posing a vital threat to the Colombian state and its people, the state has been able to reshape its own subjectivity and those of ‘nationals’ and ‘others’. The idealised constructions of identity categories in the Democratic Security Policy (DSP) for state, nationals and others disclosed an understanding of peace, politics and freedoms as postponed. The discourse of the Province of Antioquia had severe limitations. The congruent peace proposed by this state office put forward the limits of qualified state nonviolence. The Paeces del Cauca reject enrolment in the ‘army of good people’, to be ruled according to the in/security concerns of the DSP. The politics of affinity is finally addressed.
