FARC TERRORISM IN COLOMBIA A Clustering Analysis

Authors

Abstract

This paper applies clustering analysis to the Colombian armed conflict. Indeed, when applied to a FARC terrorist act database, this statistical procedure finds a natural clustering of the different FARC units according to the different types of terrorist acts they commit and identifies the military hard core of the FARC. The facts revealed in this paper should be useful not only for future military strategies, but also to determine a better priorization and geographical allocation of the scarce military resources.
