In this chapter, I will examine the transcendence of the constitutional value of cultural plurality in the design of the hallmarks of the new model of the Plurinational State introduced in Bolivias Constitution: the legislative, executive, legal and electoral bodies and the State's institutional framework. I refer to these manifestations of cultural plurality, which are characteristic of the plurinational State, as ‘organic and institutional plurinationality’. Specifically, I analyze the ‘constitutional expressions’ of cultural plurality in the model of democracy and political representation, territorial organization, the legal system and constitutional justice and the social and economic model of State as they are set out in Bolivias Constitution.

Keywords: Constitution of Bolivia, Cultural plurality, Indigenous nations and peoples, National plurality, Vulnerable groups.
