Abstract

RUANO JIMENEZ, Alba Jakeline. LABOR INSERTION FOR THE POPULATION DESPLACED BY THE ARMED CONFLICT AT THE COLOMBIAN-ECUATORIAN BORDER. Semest. Econ. [online]. 2013, vol.16, n.34, pp.93-121. ISSN 0120-6346.

This article analyzes the labor insertion process for the population that was forcefully displaced living at the city of Ipiales during 2010. The fieldwork had an ethnographical scope, was carried out with individuals facing forced displacement conditions and lasted for a year. The labor insertion experiences, the competition for a place in the informal market and the difficulties faced by these individuals when arriving to the city is evidence of the precocious social and economic situation faced by this migrating population within a peripheral city such as Ipiales with scarce employment generation sources located in the southwestern region of Colombia.

Keywords : Forced migration; informal economy; labor insertion; social networks.
