Actualmente, el 9,2% de las mujeres que residen en el país se identifican como parte de los nueve pueblos indígenas reconocidos por la ley chilena, acercándose a una población de 850.000 cuya mitad se constituye por niñas y jóvenes (Casen, 2015). Se trata de mujeres de distintos pueblos que existen en el actual territorio nacional desde tiempos precolombinos: “la Mapuche, Aimara, Rapa Nui o Pascuenses, la de las comunidades Atacameñas, Quechuas, Collas y Diaguita del norte del país, las comunidades Kawashkar o Alacalufe y Yámana o Yagán de los canales australes.” (Art. 1, Ley 19.253). Constituyen por tanto un grupo heterogéneo que se distribuye en todas las regiones del país, si bien la mayoría pertenece al pueblo Mapuche (el 83%), y reside entre la Región Metropolitana, La Araucanía y Los Lagos (respectivamente el 31%, 19% y 13%).  El 52,1% es menor de 30 años.

It is very likely that the great disagreement registered among the delegates of the nine peoples with the Chilean government, regarding the definition of "indigenous territory", will be precisely that this concept appeals to a claim that exceeds the exclusive demand for land restitution , which implies the exercise of a set of practices associated with a cultural system that is what gives flesh to the processes of self-government of a "national community".

The globalization hasn’t achieved – luckyly – uniform the agro-food systems. On the contrary, at international level, it is shown a bigger orientation towards local and quality products, expressions – in many cases – of territories with a rich and diversified cultural heritage.

Si bien es cierto todas las entidades de un gobierno tienen funciones trascendentales, algunas entidades resultan teniendo mayor relevancia que otras, dependiendo del momento histórico que esté atravesando un país. En el caso de Colombia, el actual proceso de paz no termina con una firma. Sin duda, el proceso de post-conflicto en Colombia planteará retos diversos que varias entidades deberán compartir y que le darán más preeminencia a algunas entidades. Este es el caso del Departamento para la Prosperidad Social, entidad que tiene como misión crear condiciones de prosperidad en la población vulnerable y contribuir a la reconciliación de los colombianos. El DPS es además, la entidad del Gobierno Nacional que encabeza el Sector de Inclusión Social y Reconciliación, al cual se encuentran adscritas entidades con misiones relacionadas como la Unidad para la Atención y Reparación Integral de Víctimas, la Agencia Nacional para la Superación de la Pobreza Extrema (ANSPE), el Instituto Colombiano de Bienestar Familiar (ICBF) y entre otras.
