Implementing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

Event Date: 

Thursday, March 4, 2021 - 4:00pm to 5:30pm

A source of optimism for many Indigenous communities, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP 2007) holds promise for protecting their places, traditions, and lifeways. With its benchmark standard of “free, prior, and informed consent,” the UNDRIP goes well beyond stale and frequently disingenuous models of “consultation” that emerge from and reinforce asymmetrical power relations between Native nations and settler governments. Join us to learn from two esteemed experts about implementation of this important international mechanism.
