Out today: a very interesting Bolivia Information Forum Bulletin Special Edition on Extractive Industries. Alex Tilley from BIF spoke at our January day school and this also picks up some of the issues explore in Mark Burton’s workshop which covered the vivir
bien / suma qamaña philosophy. Articles cover the Eduardo Gudynas’s framework for thinking about extraction, Bolivia’s dilemma between financing social programmes and ecological safety / Mother Earth rights, and specific analysis of conflicts over mining in Boliva.
