Not all people living within autonomous areas self-identify as part of an indigenous nation or support indigenous autonomy. However, these stipulations also obligate federal courts to increase coordination and communication with tribal legal authorities.

While correctly differentiating between the legal practice of community justice and illegal lynching is an ongoing challenge for some Bolivian and international observers, the Clause 5 of Article 5 bans the latter entirely:. For example, the U. Some sections of the law, such as those forbidding death penalty, are clear, yet others, such as mechanisms for jurisdictional cooperation, remain amorphously defined.

The Bolivian Jurisdictional Law also seeks to establish mechanisms for different jurisdictions to coordinate to protect human rights, enforce transparency and create effective conflict resolution strategies.

The Bolivian constitution also forbids any form of the death penalty.

The judicial branch, indigenous authorities and legislators must work to establish clear guidelines in order to smoothly implement and establish these laws. This alternative murisdiccional will be an important step toward fortifying the unity of the Plurinational State. However, thus far there is no indication of when any follow-up guidelines might be released, nor does the text of the law stipulate the need for such regulations.


Bolivian Jurisdictional Law: A Step in the Right Direction, but Requires Further Clarification

The Jurisdictional Law resolves some issues that arose with the passage of the constitution, but may provoke future complications.

As a result, the legislative process still has a long way to go to clearly define most of the national laws passed in the preceding year. Law 73 helps to clarify which cases and individuals can be tried in alternative judicial systems. These stipulations allay concerns that recognizing indigenous and campesino judicial authorities would permit lynching, often misconstrued as part of community justice systems see On Community Justice.

Moreover, many indigenous people live in integrated, urban environments. Media and members of the political opposition have further this confusion.
