Abstract

During the late 1990s and early 2000s, Andean countries had for the most part adopted the ILO's Convention 169. Once included in the national juridical systems, the right to consultation was positivized by means of different rules, regulations and decisions that eventually subsumed its political substance. In this paper, I analyze the processes to adopt and implement the right to Prior Consultation in Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. In exploring them, I will shed light on the technicalities of the law, which not only depoliticize self-determination but also reshape indigenous peoples.
