More than 20% of the Chiquitania is under cover of protected areas. However, more than 4 million hectares suffered the direct or indirect impact of indiscriminate logging, land trafficking, illegal invasions, agricultural frontier expansion, and forest fires.
InternetBolivia.org director, Eliana Quiroz, will talk about Bolivia’s internet challenges: the current state of play, issues concerning privacy, access and public policy, among others.
Former British diplomat, Alan Shave – living in La Paz since his retirement in 1996 – was challenged, over a glass of cognac, to write a history of the British in Bolivia. His investigations have now produced some 40 chapters in draft – and he’s still researching everything British in his adoptive country from bilateral relations to spies, mining and railway development and more.
We were so pleased to present this talk by Elizabeth Sissi Gill. In 2014 Sissi resolved to investigate her maternal grandfather’s shadowy past, a mission that took her to Vienna, the US – and to La Paz, where newspapers from the 1930s revealed an extraordinary story of an unjust accusation of murder, a 10-year prison sentence and a hero’s death fighting for Bolivia in the Chaco War.
We have the pleasure to present this EBook that contains the papers from the conference “Revolutions in Bolivia”, celebrated in March 2018.
