This book focuses its analysis on six aspects clearly present in Colombian state and society today: the native law of indigenous peoples, interculturality in the nation-state, the existence of mercenaries together with the army and guerrillas, the need to conserve the memory of the invisible victims of armed and social conflict, the fight against environmental degradation, the food crisis, the loss of biodiversity and the integrated, sustainable and non-mercantilist management of water. The book helps us decipher the codes that are hidden behind the Colombian enigma to provide the tools required to lay, as far as possible, the necessary groundwork for ending conflict in Colombia and for building stable, lasting peace in the country.
