Some authors characterize Latin America as a region of ‘Permanent Peace’. Indeed, the low incidence of interstate conflict corroborates this perception. Yet, inter-state rivalry, domestic violence and transnational crime abound in this part of the world, prompting others to name it a ‘Violent Peace’.

What lessons can we take from the ambivalent security environment in Latin America and are they transferrable?

The objective of this course is to look at the evolution of the security challenges in Latin America in order to understand the complexity of its development since the end of the Cold War. The endurance of both peace and conflict in the region offer us more general insights into the overlap and differences between traditional and non-traditional threats, the interplay of structures, agents and institutions and, ultimately, the dialectic between domestic violence and war in our times.
