Abstract

ROJAS, Diana Marcela. THE ANDEAN REGION IN THE GEOPOLITICS OF STRATEGIC RESOURCES. anal.polit. [online]. 2015, vol.28, n.83, pp.88-107. ISSN 0121-4705.  http://dx.doi.org/10.15446/anpol.v28n83.51649.

In the economy of the early 21st century, world powers vie for access and control of strategic resources at the global level. By virtue of their natural endowments and the orientation of their current economic policies, the Andean countries play a significant role in this dispute. This position of importance has given rise to a dual challenge: of developing a diversification strategy for their economic relations with a view to take advantage of the current economic boom on the one hand, and on the other, of acquiring greater room for movement on the international stage in order to promote other points on their foreign agendas. However, there is no consensus regarding the best way to use these resources in pursuit of growth and sustainable national economic development in the long term, nor about how take advantage of the situation to improve the international position of the region as a whole.

Keywords : Andean region; geopolitics; strategic resources; economic development; foreign policy in Bolivia; Colombia; Ecuador; Peru and Venezuela.
