To avoid dramatic social-ecological consequences, it is crucial to understand tipping point behaviour and to identify early warning indicators. Previo...

A specific segment of Open Access journals has been developed in inter and transdisciplinary fields and small subject areas in the social sciences and humanities: they work scholar-led, independently of publishers and without article processing charges (that is: platinum open access). Those journals fill gaps in the publication market and act as mu...

After six decades of violent confrontations between state and non-state armed actors, Colombia has recently taken decisive steps towards a sustainable peacebuilding process. The 2016 peace agreements, between Colombia’s government and the guerrilla groups, are critical achievements to sustain the country’s further economic and political development; in addition, they offer an opportunity for redistributive policies and environmental protection. However, and on the downside of this recent shift in peacebuilding, we witness new, investment-driven expansions of resource extractivism, agribusiness, tourism and unequal infrastructural and urban development as well as exclusionary conservationist projects to post-conflict zones. While promising political and economic stability the peace agreement increasingly attracts international capital to exploit the country’s resources. Colombia’s evolving towards a long-lasting internal peace thus alters the country’s place in global capitalism. In this book, 13 scholars and representatives of nongovernmental organizations analyze Colombia’s ongoing transformation from diverse disciplinary perspectives. Analyzing the peacebuilding process in its territorial expression, historical trajectories and material implementation provides fresh perspectives on Latin America’s social and economic development, in particular, in post-conflict societies. This way, this publication seeks to rethink the contested ways in which the commodification of nature, (im)material objects and social relations affect the historically persistent social inequalities in Latin America, as well as this region’s place in globalization.
