ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
Starting in December 2006, Bolivia has been refounded with a new Plurilateral Constitution, a wave of nationalizations and state intervention in the economy, and the onslaught of tribal justice in the guise of legal pluralism. The Government of Evo Morales has become increasingly close to the dictatorial regimes in Iran, Venezuela, and Cuba. This talk by Yerko Ilijic Crosa, ACCESO’s representative in Bolivia, will explore the challenges to the rule of law in Bolivia and the reasons why Bolivia is at the center of a new movement towards a new international economic order. Straight out of La Paz, the Mogadishu of the Andes, Yerko Ilijic has been a lawyer, policy maker, government technocrat, and TV pundit. Mr. Ilijic has been a youth leader in the Movement Without Fear political party, has worked for the German Government Technical Cooperation Agency (GIZ) in Chile, and has won this year’s Fordham Law School Leitner Center for International Law and Justice Alumni Human Rights Award.
