FEBRUARY 9, 2016 - Indigenous Peoples and Mining: Challenges

The Human Rights Research and Education Centre is pleased to partner with the School of Sociological and Anthropological Studies to present:

Indigenous Peoples and Mining: Challenges

In Canada, as in most of the rest of the world, the current boom in mining has disproportionally affected Indigenous peoples and territories. In some cases, Indigenous communities have welcomed extractive development on their lands, while in others, they have adamantly opposed it. What explains these contrasting modes of engagement with extractive industries in Indigenous territories? These three speakers will answer this question based on their research work on the topic.
