Show Summary Details


This chapter analyzes the questions of consensus and conflict around property questions, state institutional development, and issues affecting indigenous peoples and the environment. It discusses the responses of the Bachelet administration to these issues, and the horizontal connections between the indigenous and environmental movements. It also analyzes the most conflictive environmental issues. Furthermore, the chapter summarizes Concertaciόn policies toward indigenous peoples, and traces the history under the Lagos and Bachelet administrations of a growing and ever more violent conflict between the indigenous movement and government authorities. The chapter concludes with an analysis of the nature of the indigenous movement, its connection with other social groups, and the construction of horizontal linkages with environmentalist groups. Finally it provides a discussion of the violent movements of early 2008 that led to Bachelet's third cabinet reshuffle.
