Multiculturalism and the Welfare State

This chapter examines one of the most controversial cases in Latin America regarding the link between indigenous rights and neoliberal retrenchment. Bolivia is a central case since there indigenous leaders have entered into alliances with neoliberal parties, gaining modest indigenous MCPs in return for not opposing structural reforms. Yet these alliances did not last, and many indigenous leaders insist that neoliberalism and indigenous rights are inherently in conflict. The chapter explores what the Bolivian case says about the potential for alliances between MCPs and neoliberalism and their limits.

Keywords:   Bolivia, indigenous rights, neoliberalism, multiculturalism policies, neoliberalism, welfare state, social policy
