Indigenous territoriality and political agenda in Bolivia (1970-2010)

Abstract : Bolivia seems to be moving toward the integration of indigenous territories into the institutional, political and administrative organization of the state, a process that would result in the establishment of autonomous ethnic districts and jurisdictions. This article offers a cross-reading of events in three political arenas over the last four decades: the mobilization of indigenous organizations in defense of their rights; national debates on ethnically defined territories and indigenous identity; and increasing international support for the protection and promotion of indigenous peoples' rights. The aim is a better understanding of the complex interactions between scales of governance that have led to this new political landscape in Bolivia.
