New chapter of La Lupa! – Elections in Colombia’s areas of armed conflict
As part of our Education and Science Diplomacy project, we are premiering the third episode of La Lupa, the project’s third audio-visual web series. Each episode provides a brief and stimulating explanation of research topics related to peace in Colombia. In this chapter of La Lupa, Rovitzon Ortiz, PhD student in Latin American Studies at the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt, Germany, discusses his research on electoral behaviour in areas of armed conflict.

The research is about electoral behaviour in areas of armed conflict. This topic emerged as a result of the peace plebiscite of 2016; following the voting, Ortíz asked why this behaviour was observed in areas of armed conflict. The researcher decided to address the issue of electoral behaviour from 2010 to 2019, and was able to establish patterns that would allow him to explain why people voted for or against the peace process at that time.
