Abstract Despite the fact that it is not the only country facing critical social problems related to inequalities, Colombia is also the only one in Latin America facing an internal armed conflict that has lasted over 50 years. Extremely diversified violence has reached astonishing levels of barbarity in different sectors of urban society but, above all, in rural areas. However, a new horizon of hope is being felt in the country with the beginning of peace talks in 2012 in Havana (Cuba). While receiving broad national and international support, these peace talks, while monopolized by Fuerzas Armadas evolucionarias de Colombia – Ejército del Pueblo (FARC-EP) are not addressing the root causes of violence. In this regard, the over-politicizing of the concept of peace within Colombia has tackled the issue of national reconciliation, by reducing it to dichotomizing discourses.
