February 21: Talk on Indigenous Peoples, Development and Human Rights Movements

The Center for Human Rights and Global Justice at NYU Law invites you to "Indigenous Peoples, Development, and the Human Rights Movement," a discussion between Vasuki Nesiah and Karen Engle on the ways in which indigenous peoples have used international law to make claims for heritage, territory, and economic development around the world. Engle explores the history of these claims, considering the prevalence of particular legal frameworks and their costs and benefits for indigenous groups. Her vivid account highlights the dilemmas that accompany each legal strategy, as well as the persistent elusiveness of economic development for indigenous peoples.
