Short description

The project investigates the contact and cooperation between on the one hand indigenous people and their organisations and, on the other, governmental agencies and NGOs in the Andes.

Background and research aims

The project investigates the contact and cooperation between on the one hand indigenous people and their organizations and, on the other, governmental agencies and NGOs in the Andes.

The project departs from two key notions: “the middle ground” and “cosmopolitics”. The project consists of three subprojects of which two are located to the dry and temperate highlands – one in an urban quechua-speaking setting, carried out by Karsten Paerregaard, and the other in a rural aymara-speaking environment, carried out by Anders Burman – and the third subproject is located to the humid and tropical eastern slopes of the Andes among Matsigenka people.
