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 ‘€œPluri-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.
