    Despite Colombia is the fourth largest economy in Latin America, the Country has had a past of violence, especially in the rural areas; unfortunately the stigmatization over this country is still strong, even if in the last years it is regaining its Name.

    You have to know that since the 1960s, government forces, left-wing insurgents and right-wing paramilitaries have been engaged in the continent's longest-running armed conflict. Fuelled by the cocaine trade, this escalated dramatically in the 1980s. Nevertheless, in the recent decade (2000s) the violence has decreased significantly.

    So:

    1)Past history of violence

    2)Big difference between the poorest and richest classes.

    3)The need to study abroad, since Colombian titles are still underestimated, for the reason above.

    4)low family income, even though you would never listen about starving over there, they have thousands of resources, It's a rich country, but the distribution of richness is not equal, a bit such as all over the world.

    5)the need to go abroad and demonstrate that everything is not always as the media shows, in order to eliminate the estigmatization it has suffered for decades.

    I don't add criminality, because the rates are not very different from that of other places in latin America, compare Detroit, Chicago, Boston rates! It's just a question of how the information is emphasized.

    at this moment the reasons would be more economical. educational, and love. before it was economical, political. there was insecurity with the struggle of the paramilitares, guerrillas, cartels of the drug and emerald, all fighting for the piece of the big money.
