VALENTIN MBALLA, Louis  y  COPA PABON, Magali Vianca. An Analytical Approach to Legal Pluralism in Bolivia: The Aymara in a Multipolar Panorama from the Vision of Fernando Untoya. Humanidades [online]. 2020, vol.10, n.1, pp.169-183. ISSN 2215-3934.

This article makes an approach to legal pluralism in Bolivia. From the vision of Untoya, the contributions of Indianist and Katarist authors are resumed through the notions of self and Indian rebellion. Based on these notions, the existence of a concealment dynamic in the application of Bolivian legal pluralism is proposed. In this sense, the recognition of indigenous justice implies at the same time a serious limitation in its exercise, which maintains an asymmetric and dichotomous relationship between ordinary justice and indigenous justice. Therefore, within the framework of this article, the importance of identity is reaffirmed in a multipolar context dominated by cultural relativisms and the blurring of identities, jeopardizing the development of Indian nations in Latin America in general and in Bolivia in particular.
