Natural Resource Governance, Grievances and Conflict

The Case of the Bolivian Lithium Program


Janine Romero Valenzuela ana­lyses the Bolivian lithium program in the lar­gest empi­rical study to date with a focus on local pers­pectives and go­ver­nance, identifying grie­vances and conflict dimen­sions. The case study shows that it is par­ticu­larly an al­tered gover­nance approach, the local trust in govern­ment and the high expec­tations that the Mor­ales ad­minis­tration could create around lithi­um that influence local view­points. By app­lying the meanin­gful grie­vance concept on the local level, the book supports a further refine­ment of theories on a resource-gover­nance-conflict-link.
