This undergraduate thesis seeks to identify the intersectionalities between decolonization policy and food sovereignty practice within the Bolivian plurinational state. It intends to seek whether or not food sovereignty exists within the execution of Decolonization under the readjustment of Bolivia's plurinational constitution. This research also seeks to acknowledge how this discourse plays out within domestic and international markets, land disputes between Andean highland farmers and Amazonian lowland farmers, and the potential reasonings for those tensions.
