Economía, espacio y conflicto


  • Cristian Camilo Amezquita Bravo


Este trabajo analiza el concepto de espacio en la teoría económica, dado que los sistemas económicos requieren de la apropiación del espacio geográfico para producir. No obstante, los planes y políticas económicas de los gobiernos buscan imponer actividades económicas en los territorios sin previamente consultar con las comunidades locales ni contemplar la complejidad de la figura socio-espacial. Esto se ha dado históricamente hasta hoy debido a la incapacidad y la falta de esfuerzo por parte de la teoría económica por incorporar las variables sociales, fundamentalmente el concepto espacio, que ha contribuido en el origen de conflictos sociales y ambientales en los territorios. ****** This paper analyses the concept of space in economic theory, given that economic systems require the appropriation of geographic space to produce. However, the government’s economic plans and policies seek to impose economic activities in the territories without previously consulting with local communities or contemplating the complexity of the socio-spatial figure. This has occurred historically, due to the inability and the lack of effort of economic theory to incorporate social variables, specifically the concept of space, which has contributed to the origin of social and environmental conflicts in the territories.
