Resumen

SILVA PRADA, Diego Fernando. Construction of territoriality from peasant organizations in Colombia. Polis [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.43, pp.633-654. ISSN 0718-6568.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-65682016000100029.

The aim of this article is to show the type of territory built by peasant organizations in Colombia, occupying the concept of territory from the critic undertaken by H. Lefebvre, y C. Raffestin to the naturalized idea of territory, understood as Newtonian, neutral, static and absolute space. This instrumental and physicalist approach has been re-evaluated, in order to give greater weight to the social, cultural and political dimensions. The territory is, therefore, a socio-cultural construction of long-term, dynamic and conflictive, where the communities and institutions are the central actors of that construction. Peasant organizations such as the Sindicato de Trabajadores Agrícolas de Sumapaz (Sintrapaz) or the Asociación Campesina del Valle del Río Cimitarra (ACVC) are demanding the appropriation of the design of territoriality through autonomous development plans, finding a specific use for this complex and dynamic way of understanding the territory in multidimensional terms. Thus, organized peasant communities are expliciting in the last decades the claim for territorial as a right for self-determination against the State that has been a monopoly of the definition of internal and external social territories.

Palabras clave : Territory; critical Geography; Colombian peasant organization; social democratization.
