GONZALEZ MIRANDA, Sergio. A Voice from the Distance. The Andean Triple-Frontier: Between Heterology and Globalization. Andamios [online]. 2015, vol.12, n.28, pp.19-41. ISSN 2594-1917.

This paper is an attempt to show how the Andean-borderland communities (Peru, Bolivia and Chile), which were considered through the nineteenth and part of the twentieth century, by the diplomatic and central-state institutions, as heterological, marginal and diplomatically negotiable territories, have reached, since the late twentieth century, a “strategic position” at local, regional, national and international levels, especially on transfrontier scaling. This position has been reached due to emerging processes such as globalization and glocalization. The Andean-highland communities of Ancomarca, Charaña and Visviri are discussed in the scope of this paper.

Keywords : Diplomacy; triple-frontier; Andean communities; heterology; globalization.
