Sumario:Political integration is an underlying challenge of peace accords, particularly in the case of Latin America. The agreements usually provide mechanisms to facilitate the transition of violent groups to the legal political parties; however, their integration, in political terms, requires the implementation of certain instruments that let the members of violent groups become citizens able to take part of the political decisions in different scenarios. The previous peace processes in El Salvador, Guatemala and Colombia left three peace accords that have served as analysis model to draw the conditions for political integration of violent groups. Then, this research analyses the inclusion of those conditions into the recent signed peace accords between the National Government of Colombia and the FARC – EP.
