FAJRELDIN CHUAQUI, Valentina. Situation of indigenous peoples in Chile in front of biomedical research. An interdisciplinary perspective. Anthropologica [online]. 2022, vol.40, n.49, pp.307-332.  Epub 27-Feb-2023. ISSN 0254-9212.

This article reflects from an interdisciplinary perspective that links bioethics with medical anthropology, on the challenges of indigenous peoples in the face of biomedical research according to the current scenario of ethical and intercultural institutions and regulations in Chile. This reflection takes as its foundation two concrete cases of unethical biomedical operations - one with the Rapa Nui people, the other with the Mapuche people - to show the relational dynamics of the actors involved, their expectations and objectives. The reflection proposes a discussion around the possibilities of a bioethics situated and coherent with the frameworks of rights in health of indigenous peoples, that manages to orient biomedical research towards the benefit of the subjects - individuals and groups - in question

Palabras clave : Research Ethics; I health rights of indigenous peoples; interdiscipline; Bioethics; Medical Anthropology.
