Lithium Geopolitics in South America and the divergents national public policies

Bernardo Salgado Rodrigues, Raphael Padula

Abstract


This article seeks to address the geopolitics of lithium in South America from the analysis of Argentine, Bolivian and Chilean public policies. Our hypothesis is that there is an institutional divergence between these countries with different projects related to this natural resource. From a geostrategic vision, we argued that regional integration can play a key role in the sovereignty of lithium for countries and their societies.
