Abstract

Peru’s response to COVID-19 has favored large-scale mining interests while constraining livelihood possibilities for artisanal and small-scale miners. Large-scale mining has been offered opportunities to reinforce its role in territorial governance and been freed of certain regulatory requirements. In this essay we identify a significant risk that the response to COVID-19 facilitates authoritarian forms of government as a legitimate form of rule.
