Organized violence and political communication. Conflict as narrative (DIEEEA56-2012)

Terrorism is, however illegitimate it may be, a tool of politics staged by bloodshed. The violence is part of terrorism, but terrorism is not just violence, in fact, violence is not the most important of terrorism, but the speech that it serves or whose promotion is looking for. The center of gravity of the struggle against violence is thus in the narrative to which it belongs without which actions loses its meaning and direction.
