Voces latinoamericanas. Mercantilización de la naturaleza y resistencia social

The Latin American voices gathered here contribute to the analysis of the complex relationship between the intensive use of the region's natural resources and the respect for the full right of self-determination of peoples in the governance of their natural environment. The contributions of the chapters that make up the book debate and analyze the current processes around the environmental crisis and the commodification of nature. Thus, the reader finds as a common denominator the critical reflection on concepts, processes and elements of the current situation in environmental matters that function as triggers of the deployment of crucial socio-economic problems that demand an urgent response in the field of public policy. The works are organized in three axes: commodification of nature, environmental policies and resistance and social response. Understanding how these elements reconfigure each other and shape an essential part of the tensions between the accumulation of capital and its limits in our current Latin America is a fruitful exercise to glimpse the directions of its future.
