Abstract

Socio-environmental conflicts are those focused on the incompatability of the use of natural resources and their impacts on the environment by different social groups. The number and importance of such conflicts has increased significantly in Latin America during the last decade, and here the focus is on the specific case of Argentina, analyzing their characteristics which, for some, have prevented to date a solution that is beyond "sum zero".
