Resumen

MARTINEZ ESPINOZA, Manuel Ignacio. Unimplemented Recognition. An Assessment of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples in Latin America. Rev. mex. cienc. polít. soc [online]. 2015, vol.60, n.224, pp.251-277. ISSN 0185-1918.

This article analyzes the status of the rights of indigenous peoples in Latin America, emphasizing the existing "implementation gap", which allows for the differentiation between formal recognition of the international rights framework, and the lack of administrative and policy practices by Latin American states. Participation in decision making, together with land, territory and natural resources claims, has been one of the demands indigenous peoples have recently put more vehemently forth in the region. Governments' responses have usually been intimidation, repression, incarceration and assassination of indigenous persons. Such a scheme of conflicts and violation of rights is exemplified by the case of Guatemalan indigenous peoples' mobilizations against mining in their country.

Palabras llave : human rights; indigenous peoples; self-determination; mining; Guatemala; indigenization of marginality.
