The revival by the government of Evo Morales of the controversial TIPNIS project that plans to run a highway through an indigenous and environmental reserve has re-opened wounds between Bolivia’s president and indigenous movement. The project also brings into focus once again the conflict between nationalist visions of development and indigenous environmental rights. This talk will examine this emblematic case and its potential impact.

Talk delivered by Chris O’Connell and Victor Flores
