A Preview of Coming Attractions
I am back from my work in humid Bangkok and back to a welcome downpour of rain in Cochabamba. We haven’t forgotten you and the Democracy Center team is madly at work on a host of projects coming up shortly on the Blog. Here’s a preview:
Elections Once More!
Next April Bolivians head back to the polls yet again, this time to elect Mayors and Governors across the country. What’s at stake? Who is running? What are the issues?
Four Former Presidents on Trial
Last week the Bolivian government announced that it wants to step up prosecution efforts against four recent Bolivian Presidents. We’ll look into one of these cases with some facts that may surprise you.
The Cochabamba Climate Change Summit
In April thousands of climate change activists from around the world will descend on Cochabamba for a global climate change meeting called by President Evo Morales. In a series of Blog posts we’ll look at plans for the conference, the issues to be discussed, and efforts by Bolivian environmental groups to draw attention to the serious, unattended environmental issues right here at home.
Entel vs. Bolivia
The European telecommunications giant that until recently was the owner of the Bolivian communications firm Entel, is changing its strategy in its legal attack on Bolivia over the government’s re-nationalization of the company. We’ll have an analysis of what’s behind the case.
In addition to that the Democracy Center is wrapping up work on a major paper on lithium in Bolivia, based on extensive fieldwork across the country over the past two months.
So stay tuned!
