In this chapter Vergara-Figueroa reviews the sociological literature on forced displacement, forced migration, land dispossession and exclusion. She describes the attack at Bellavista-Bojayá-Chocó, and outlines the analytics used in research to develop the main arguments of the book. The author calls for alternative conceptual frameworks to comprehend land dispossession using a world-historical perspective.
