    This yearbook chapter discusses the link between international investment law and commercial pressures on the world’s natural resources. It argues that changes in legal frameworks are redefining control over natural resources, and facilitating transitions toward more commercialised land relations.

    Las campañas transcurridas entre 1879 y 1885 terminaron con la existencia autónoma de los pueblos indígenas de pampa y nord-patagonia y provocaron su desarticulación social.
