  • Land ownership is historically linked to brute power in Colombia. Thw 3.5 million internally displaced people (IPD) of today have lost about 1 million hectares of land. This paper argues restitution will be very costly, but it might be necessary to avoid impunity to prevent similar land confiscations in future.
