A Look at Mining
Chapter 13: Mining, rights of nature, and suma qamaavivir bien in Bolivia through the lens of ecological law
This chapter presents the third of three case studies in this book applying the lens of ecological law to three different legal approaches to mining in order to reflect on their implications for a shift to ecological law. Turning to Bolivia, this chapter examines mineral extraction in the context of the rights of Mother Earth and the Andean concept of vivir bien/buen vivir (living well), both recognized in Bolivian law, and considers their significance for ecological law with particular focus on Bolivia’s lithium industrialization project in the Salar de Uyuni.
