Chile government will struggle with indigenous issues

Friday, December 30, 2022

Significance

Meanwhile, part of the area remains under a state of emergency in an attempt to contain a surge in the violence that has plagued it for over two decades.

Impacts

  • A second proposed new constitution, to be drafted in 2023, would likely include recognition of indigenous peoples, but not plurinationality.
  • Economic development in the poor Araucania Region is being severely hampered by the level of violence.
  • Several surveys suggest that the violence in southern Chile is undermining public sympathy for Mapuche demands.
