dc.description.abstract It has become customary for large transnational mining companies to pressure governments to modify national legislation to suit company interests. However, this was not expected to happen in Ecuador since its Constitution specifically protects the rights of nature and is very clear on the control the state must have of extractive activities as well as on the state's share of earnings from this industry. This is to the dismay of environmental and human rights organizations, who view the policy reforms as unconstitutional. en_US
