Date: May 5-8, 2022

Indigenous Peoples, State-Capital and Water Extractivism: a multilevel analysis of water disputes in Guatemala (Spanish, online).

Organizers: Santiago Bastos (CIESAS Mexico) and María Jacinta Xón (RIVERS/UC3M)

This panel aims to advance in a critical and interdisciplinary analysis of the interconnection of the different scenarios of conflict – national and local – generated by the control of water in Guatemala.

LASA 2022 – Roundtable discussion: Security, development and territory: critical reflections on State violence – Racial Capital (Spanish, online)
Organizers: Principal Investigators Lieselotte Viaene of RIVERS-ERC and Silvia RodrÍguez Maeso – POLITICS-ERC.

This Roundtable proposes to discuss how racial hierarchies have shaped the dominant understandings of security and development for the control of territories and what is constituted as “human” and “natural” resources in urban and rural spaces. We propose to think about the connections and affinities that occur in the fields of law, the justice system and public policies in the fields of intervention of “citizen security” and “extractivist economy”, crucial to understand the reproduction of the genocidal vocation of the racial State-Capital.
