Columbia University's 2022 International Summer Program on Indigenous Peoples' Rights and Policy – with partners University of Auckland and UBC:
Columbia University's Center for the Study of Ethnicity and Race is accepting applications from professionals, researchers, practitioners and advanced students to participate in an intensive three-and-a-half-week summer program at Columbia University in New York City on Indigenous Peoples’ rights and policy. With a central focus on human rights, this intensive program provides an overview and analysis of the major questions in Indigenous affairs today, as they have emerged globally in the last decades. The program has an interdisciplinary approach and incorporates lectures and workshops on the most recent and innovative academic research and policy debates on Indigenous Peoples’ issues. It is complemented by virtual visits to the United Nations and to a Native American Nation, discussions with United Nations officials, officials of a Native American Nation and other relevant parties.
Columbia University faculty, Indigenous and other experts, plus UN representatives, deliver the academic lectures and workshops, and are available for discussions and consultations with the participants throughout the duration of the program. Participants are to be immersed in daily three to four hours of lectures, workshops and discussions, including asynchronous learning. Some topics are presented in the form of panel discussions by participants and practical workshops. A Certificate of Completion will be awarded at the end of the program.
