Between visions and realities : Norway`s peace engagement in Colombia
MetadataVis full innførsel
Norway has established a good reputation by taking responsibility for international peace and security and has been actively involved in several peace processes all over the world. With its peace engagement Norway has established its own section for peace and reconciliation and adapted a model for peace with certain characteristics unique for Norway. However, in the Norwegian official reports and evaluation of its peace engagement there is lacking a clear definition of the notion of peace and what is defined as success for Norway´s peace engagement. Further Norway have been modest on stating its motives for engaging so greatly in international peace and security. The aim of the thesis is to get a deeper understanding of Norwegian engagement for peace by looking at its involvement in the Colombian peace process.
