Research output: Other contributionNet publication - Internet publicationCommunication


Governments and businesses argue that the energy transition contributes to sustainable development and environmental conservation. And yet the confrontation between corporations and the state with Indigenous Peoples reflects a continuing oppression and repression. Discussions on self-determination, respect for human rights, and investment in climate change mitigation are woven together in the Isthmus of Tehuantepec to offer new insights into the conflicts and social unrest created by the green industry.
