It’s been about a month since Evo Morales resigned as president of Bolivia following weeks of civil protests over disputed results of the country’s general election in October.
After initially seeking asylum in Mexico, Morales flew to Argentina on Thursday to be granted refugee status.
Gabriel Hetland, an assistant professor of Latin American, Caribbean and U.S. Latino Studies, shares his insights on the political crisis and why he believes the resignation was a military coup.
Hetland’s research focuses on urban and national politics, participatory democracy and social movements. Learn more about his work.
