Elsa Stamatopoulou, Adjunct Professor, Center for the Study of Ethnicity and Race & Department of Anthropology
The lecture will explore the complex historic circumstances and political actions that gave rise to the international Indigenous Peoples’ movement through the human rights agenda and thus also produced a global indigenous identity. The interaction between the Indigenous Peoples’ movement-one of the strongest social movements of our times- and the intergovernmental system over the past 40 years has been questioning and impacting on international norms, institutions and major global debates in human rights, political science, international law, development and others. What is the significance of the continuing indigenous emergency in today’s world?
This event is co-sponsored by the Department of Anthropology.
