COMPREHENSIVE REPARATION CAN HELP RETURNEES STEER CLEAR OF VIOLENCE Between 7 and 19 percent of Colombia’s internally displaced population has declared an interest in returning, representing a possible return case-load of over a million people. Given When they displaced, many of these people were uprooted from unstable municipalities with high crime rates. By helping victims resolve social, economic and psychosocial issues, comprehensive reparations have the potential to reduce their susceptibility to crime on return to these municipalities. Studies show crop substitution is also crucial, as regions with the most coca planted also have high levels of displacement (illegal economies, presence of illegal crops and armed groups). These areas bring together different factors that contribute to high levels of vulnerability, which could result in re-victimization or re-ignite illegal activities in the future.
