Success of the Workshop The Politics of Indigenous Participatory Rights: Latin America in Comparative Perspective
On November 5th and 12th, the workshop on indigenous participatory rights in Latin America in a comparative perspective was successfully held. It was the result of the collaboration between ERIGAL, the Chair of Participation and Citizenship-s, the CPDS and the CRIDAQ.
The first session featured and discussed the work of Maïah Jakoski (Northern Arizona), Roger Merino (Universidad del Pacífico) and Marcela Torres-Wong (FLACSO-Mexico) on the institutional structures and socio-historical conditions surrounding the implementation of Free Prior Informed Consent (FPIC) in Latin America.
The second session focused on the work of Tulia G. Falleti (University of Pennsylvania), Riccarda Flemmer (University of Hamburg); and Martin Papillon, Françoise Montambeault (UdeM) and Nora Nagels (UQAM). The second session focused on the circulation and diffusion of the Free Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) norm by integrating it into a contextualized and historicized analysis.
Thank you to all the participants for these rich and exciting exchanges!
