"Conflictos Socioambientales en América Latina" we reconstruct that history of three decades of regulatory processes, indigenous political mobilization and expansion of extractive economies in native territories. We focus on Latin America and on a specific type of conflict: disputes over the right of indigenous peoples to be consulted before carrying out extractive projects in their territories or the adoption of regulations that directly affect them. The legal figure of prior consultation will serve as an analytical and narrative thread, which we will pull to unravel the complex political, cultural, economic and socio-environmental conflicts in which the future of indigenous peoples has played out –and, now, with the arrival of the climate crisis, the future of the planet itself.
