COHA is pleased to invite you to:

Continuity and Change in Bolivia:

Neocolonialism, Societal Transformation and Food Sovereignty

Professor John Brohman, COHA Guest Scholar, will address the continuing presence of a neocolonial economy dominated by extractive industries and agricultural export production, and the relative progress that has been made during the Evo Morales administration toward meeting the professed goals of food sovereignty/security and socioeconomic transformation in favor of the interests of the poor majority of the population. The study finds both contradictions and opportunities in the ways in which these longstanding structures and more recent processes of change are intertwined.
