Bolivia: A Year of Living Dangerously

Abstract [en]

During 2008 Bolivia was shaken by political conflicts occurring in an increasingly deinstitutionalised context. Both government and opposition made frequent use of extra-institutional actions and in September, the massacre of a march of government supporters in the department of Pando showed the capacity for violence present in the system. Still, the year also saw the political system exhibit its capacity for finding solutions at the last moment. Already in October, government and opposition negotiated an agreement on the one issue which had been at the centre of the year's conflicts; the proposal for a new constitution. Eventually, the year 2008 ended with more calm, although a number of themes and conflicts loomed on the horizon.
