Socio-Environmental Rights in Colombia: Insights from Black and Indigenous Leaders
November 9, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Ethnic groups in Colombia are increasingly at risk as extractive economies expand into their ancestral lands to open mining and agribusiness frontiers. Leaders from Colombia’s Pacific coast—a region of Indigenous and Black traditional territories—will discuss the rights of their communities, the impact of climate change, and the consequences of human rights violations on their livelihoods. Moderated by Marcela Velasco, Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science, whose SoGES 2018-19 Resident Fellowship initially supported this work.
Organized by the Center for Environmental Justice and Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program; co-sponsored in part by SoGES.
