In January of this year, Evo Morales began his second term as Bolivia’s President following another outstanding electoral victory. Part of his ambitious social, ethnic and political agenda, is to give continuity to the initial impetus given by the implementation of a New Constitution. Dr. Luis Tapia, an influential Bolivian ideologist and scholar, will provide insights on some of the main ideological considerations of a nation that perceives itself as “Pluri-National”, where national and ethnic identities make governance a daunting task. This session will be moderated by Dr. Ludovico Feoli, Director of the Center for Inter-American Research (CIPR) with an introduction by Dr. Martín Mendoza-Botelho of Tulane.
