Current changes in Bolivia carry along processes of decentralisation. As a result, the potential for conflict related to democratic governance and participation has risen at the regional as well as the local level. The policy of large-scale exploitation of natural resources fuels further disputes and has an impact on the environment and particularly on marginalised and disadvantaged population groups.
However, political participation processes are increasingly non-violent, and local legislation is drafted on a participatory basis. More and more, conflicts over environmental issues and resources are also resolved in a non-violent manner. Marginalised and disadvantaged population groups, particularly indigenous peoples, smallholders and women, are demonstrably exercising their rights. Their participation in political processes is strengthened, and this is facilitated by intercultural dialogue.
