“The Bolivia of Evo Morales and the MAS: Achievements and Challenges”
The election of Evo Morales and the Movement Towards Socialism (MAS) party in Bolivia is leading to a transformation of the country. The constitution has been re-written and Bolivia re-founded as a “Plurinational State”; the government has taken control of natural resources, including gas and oil, and is spending increased income on social programmes to benefit Bolivia's poorest groups. Indigenous people are now participating at the highest levels of office and women are playing a key role in public administration.
