Abstract
  • Ideology played an extensive role in the post-Cold War insurgencies examined here (the Taliban Movement, in Afghanistan; the Parti pour la Révolution des Peuples, in the Democratic Republic of Congo; and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, in Colombia) beyond the discursive level. Ideology served the rhetorical purpose of legitimizing armed struggles, but it also proved crucial to determine the insurgent organizations’ internal structures and their apparatus of power in territories under their control, to shape their governmental policies, and to provide strategic and tactical gains in the battlefield.
