Violence and Growth in Colombia: A Review of the Quantitative Literature

Publicado en

  • Economics of Peace and Security Journal


  • This is a critical review of the empirical literature on the relationship between violence and economic growth in Colombia, an interesting case study for social scientists studying violence, conflict, crime, and development. We argue that despite the rapid development of this literature and the increasing use of new quantitative techniques, there is still much room for research. After assessing the contribution of the most influential papers on the subject, we suggest directions for future research.
