Law 1448 of Victims and Land Restitution was ratified in Colombia in June 2011. Intergovernmental organizations, countries and non-state actors supported the Colombian government in the design and implementation of the initiative. Drawing on a framing analysis, namely, Entman and Serra’s analysis of international frame projection, this paper explores the dynamics of convergence and contestation between international and domestic sectors in relation to the legislation’s implications for rural development and peace. The results suggest a need to understand the ‘glocal’ flows of political communication in contexts of governance and to illustrate the contradictions emerging from the humanitarian and developmental agendas of international cooperation.
