Indigenous Rights and Environmental Justice in Bolivia
INTL faculty, Dr. Derrick Hindery leads a summer study abroad focusing on Indigenous Rights & Environmental Justice in Bolivia. Students learn from indigenous peoples themselves and look at a range of lenses through which indigenous peoples and other actors view the environment. This program focuses on pressing contemporary issues, including self-determination and autonomy; indigenous peoples and climate justice; oil/gas/mining conflicts on indigenous territories; legal developments and challenges; natural resource management in indigenous territories (e.g. community-forestry); development encroachment (e.g. industrial farming and logging); conservation of biodiversity related to indigenous peoples’ intellectual property rights; and indigenous agroecology.
