Autonomía Indígena en Ecuador: Fundamentos, Extravíos Y Desafíos

Translated title of the contribution: Indigenous Autonomy in Ecuador: Foundations, Losses and Challenges

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Just over three decades have passed since the Ecuadorian indigenous movement made public its demand to recognize the country as a plurinational state. One of 16 demands presented in the great "Indigenous Uprising" of June 1990, together with others such as the legalization and free adjudication of lands and territories, the right to (internal) self-determination and autonomy, which consists of creating a regime of self-government, allowing them to have legal competence over the administration of the internal affairs of their communities, within the framework of the national State; and respect for their own thinking, organizational forms and political practices.
