Forum: "Foro Urgente—La Democracia en Juicio: Derechos Mapuche y Gobernabilidad Democrática en Chile y Argentina"

Jennifer Pribble, University of Richmond
Patricia Richards, University of Georgia

This event will examine a crucial question for theorists of democracy in Latin America: How to reconcile the glowing evaluations of Chilean democracy in general with the bitter conflicts and critiques brought to the fore with a focus on indigenous rights?  Are indigenous activists extremists, or is democratic process in Chile seriously flawed in the area of cultural rights?
