Public Sociology in Columbia

César Rodríguez-Garavito describes what it’s like to be doing public sociology in some of the most dangerous areas of Colombia, working with indigenous groups in a context of war between paramilitary and FARC and the invasion of foreign capital, what he fittingly calls a social minefield. He shows the possibilities and limits of international law that require prior consultation over development projects that involve land expropriations, population removals, and community destruction.
