How Narco-Trafficking Constitutes a Coastal Nicaraguan Society

Speaker(s)
Description

This talk is concerned with the relationship between narco-trafficking, myth-making and the perceived failure of the autonomy process in the small coastal communities on Nicaragua’s Caribbean coast. It assesses the role of this sector of the regional economy in subsistence, development, law and political processes, while examining the actions and perceptions of local people within those communities negotiating various configurations of the relationship between narco-trafficking and an autonomy process that many deem to have floundered. Although the discussion draws on cases principally from the Pearl Lagoon district, it is argued that the conclusions are applicable to coastal communities in other parts of Nicaragua’s Caribbean coast, and in a number of aspects to rural communities in other parts of Latin America.
