Type
Conference / Symposium
Venue
Bloomsbury Room, G35, Ground Floor, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU
Description

January 2018 marked twelve years since the inauguration of Evo Morales, leader of the Movimiento al Socialismo (MAS), as President and the start of one of the longest continuous periods of government in Bolivia’s history. 

The twelve years of MAS rule is not however unique, and finds precedent in the twelve years of Movimiento Nationalista Revolucionario (MNR) rule, 1952-1964. 

This one-day conference will place Bolivia’s current processes of change in historical context. We will reflect upon the similarities and differences between these two periods of revolution, as well as consider the long view of MAS policies and the striking period of economic, political and social change that Bolivia has experienced since 2006.
