Abstract

The article presents some remarks on violence in Latin America, using the theoretical heritage of the founding fathers of sociology and a historical-comparative perspective. In particular, the comparison between Europe and Latin America highlights the different relationship between violence among States and violence within the States in these regions, generated by interstate competition and colonial heritage. The paper ends with some sociological observations on the peace processes underway in some Latin American countries, especially Colombia.
En el artículo se presentan algunas consideraciones sobre el fenómeno de la violencia en América Latina, partiendo del enfoque de los clásicos de la sociología y desde una perspectiva analítica histórico-comparativa. Sobre todo la comparación entre Europa y América Latina destaca una relación diferente entre la violencia entre los Estados y la violencia dentro de los Estados en estas regiones del mundo, generada por la competencia interestatal y la herencia colonial. El ensayo finaliza con algunas observaciones sociológicas sobre los procesos de paz en curso en algunos países de América Latina, sobre todo en Colombia.
