Abstract

BOCAREJO, DIANA. DOS PARADOJAS DEL MULTICULTURALISMO COLOMBIANO: LA ESPACIALIZACIÓN DE LA DIFERENCIA INDÍGENA Y SU AISLAMIENTO POLÍTICO. Rev. colomb. antropol. [online]. 2011, vol.47, n.2, pp.97-121. ISSN 0486-6525.

The practice of multiculturalism in Colombia is exercised within complex disputes and claims arising among many social actors, beneficiaries or not of differential rights. This article addresses two paradoxes of the political arrangements of multiculturalism in Colombia related to the spatialization of indigenous difference and its political implications. The first one refers to the way in which a legal indigenous subject is shaped, using the fact that an indigenous person lives in "his/her" rural reservation as one of the main features. The second paradox is the political isolation that has taken shape between indigenous peoples and peasants. In this way, I try to prove the importance of studying not only the cultural policies, but also the political culture which enables and builds multiculturalism.

Keywords : multiculturalism; spatialization of difference; political effects of minority rights.
