Landlocked in South America, Bolivia is located in the mountainous Andean region of the continent. Despite the country’s rich mineral and energy resources, it remains among the poorest nations in South America, and the majority of the country are low-income subsistence farmers, miners, small traders or artisans. Little progress has been made to address human rights abuses committed before the re-establishment of democracy in 1982, and has been criticised for investigating these abuses through the military justice system.
