  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Indigenous Peoples; Environmental Rights; Nature and Natural Resources; Latin America.

In the framework of the Latin American identity politics, indigenous peoples have gained specific rights, while social conflicts around natural resources have become an important issue in the region. By focusing on land and environmental rights in the new Bolivian and Ecuadorian constitutions, the article analyses the emerging confrontation between collective land rights and governments' development agendas, and highlights longstanding stereotypes and timeless perceptions of indigeneity in widespread interpretations of environmental struggles.
