Arturo Escobar argues that violence is not only endemic but constitutive of development. He suggests that the level of violence is closely tied to a feature of modernity that has become so naturalized that it is no longer remarked upon and at times even celebrated: displacement. Indeed, modernity is essentially about displacement – conquering territories, uprooting peoples from place, restructuring spaces, such as creating plantations and urban sprawl or ghettoes. He uses his work on Colombia to illustrate his argument.Development (2004) 47, 15–21. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1100014
