Globalización y multiculturalidad. Pueblos indígenas y medio ambiente en la Amazonia

By Sergio Villena


<p>This paper is a theoretical proposal aimed at analyzing the challenges, threats, menaces and opportunities posed by globalization upon indigenous peoples in the context of a specific global situation: environmental preservation. The problem is approached focusing on three conflicts characteristic of globalization: a) the relation between global and local, b) the problem of civilizing alternatives, and c) the new dynamics of social exclusion/inclusion. These conflicts, once theorized, are used to analyze the convergence of indigenous demands on territoriality, identity and citizenship, with spatial, development and sustainability dimensions surrounding environmental management in a specific case: strategies which have been developed by Amazonian indigenous peoples.</p
