Leviatán débil, un concepto para explicar el estado desde las regiones [Weak Leviathan, a Concept to Explain the Status Regions]


  • MPRA Paper


  • Our hypothesis is proposed to introduce the idea of ??Leviathan weak, the classical conception of the state is problematized; primarily in regions suffering public violence, lack of legitimacy and sovereignty. This paper is the first part of a project that distinguishes three components that contrast with the type of state: (a) the relevance of geography to understand political and economic transformations arising at local level. (b) the parastatal structure (premodern) underlying the formation and maintenance of irregular armies in the Pacific region; (c) Strategic and assimilate correlations that distinguish groups fighting for the dominance of the state on regional geography. Here I limit my search to the first component. Further work should teach the correlations between paramilitaries groups of emerging Leviathan, their new identities and geopolitical impact within the overall set of geography to Colombia.
