Abstrakt

This chapter examines the various aspects of forced internal displacement and internally
displaced persons in Colombia. It looks at the state‟s development and security policies that
aimed to create growth, which consequently shaped a new idea of citizenship and facilitated the
expression of violence; additionally promoting the idea of forced displacement as a banal social
fact. The analysis of state‟s development policies in Colombia has shown the contested relation
of citizenship with IDPs. In particular, the chapter contributes to understand the relationship
between „conflict‟,‟ government‟, „development‟ and „citizenship‟ in the case of IDPs in
Colombia. By looking at those dynamics the chapter aims to highlight the challenges faced by
those citizens that due to forced displacement find themselves in a situation of institutional
abandonment, and how different actors, from both public and private sector, work towards
reshaping the notion of citizenship.
