COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY’s Institute for the Study of Human Rights and the Center for the Study of Ethnicity and Race are glad to inform you that we are now accepting applications for the 2023 International Summer Program on Indigenous Peoples' Rights and Policy (ISSP). This program also enjoys the cooperation of the University of Auckland (New Zealand) and the University of British Columbia (Canada).
The deadline for submitting applications is October 31, 2022. We are accepting applications from professionals, researchers, practitioners and advanced students who wish to participate in an intensive summer program at Columbia University on Indigenous Peoples’ rights and policy. If pandemic circumstances allow, the program will be in person for two weeks, from approximately end of May to June, 2023. Otherwise, the program will be held remotely for three weeks, from 22 May to 9 June, 2023.
With a central focus on human rights, this intensive immersion 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 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.
