Abstract

El estado de derecho incluye derechos a la tierra y a la libre expresión de las comunidades indígenas y campesinas. La afirmación de estos derechos por dichas comunidades puede chocar con los intereses económicos de las empresas mineras y las leyes de los gobiernos. El poder judicial puede desempeñar un rol importante en la promoción de soluciones justas, viables y de largo plazo.

The rule of law includes rights to land and free expression for indigenous people and campesino communities. The assertion of these rights can come into conflict with the economic interests of mining companies and state laws. The judiciary can play an important role in creating long term solutions which are just and viable.
