Call for Papers! Policy towards Indigenous Peoples: Lessons to be learned!

Centre for Environmental and Minority Policy Studies (CEMiPoS), Sapporo/Japan

4-6 December 2017

http://cemipos.blogspot.jp/2016/12/v-behaviorurldefaultvmlo.html

Deadline: May 1, 2017

Preface

This conference is organized by the Centre for Environmental and Minority Policy Studies, an independent research centre in Sapporo, in cooperation with the Ainu Women’s Association in Hokkaido (Ainu Moshir), the Hugo Valentin Centre, Uppsala University and the Northern Institute of Environmental and Minority Law, Arctic Centre, University of Lapland.

2017 marks the tenth anniversary of the historic adoption of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) by the UN General Assembly with overwhelming favorable votes. The purpose of the Declaration is to remedy the historical denial of the right of self-determination and related human rights. Indigenous peoples are, however, still suffering from and fighting against wounds caused by historical injustices imposed on them as well as ongoing development projects at the cost of Indigenous rights. Furthermore, the linguistic and cultural survival of indigenous peoples are in many ways threatened by the sweeping policies adopted by governments. What progress has been made for Indigenous peoples since the UNDRIP? It is a perfect time to examine, from the standpoint of Indigenous peoples, the outcomes and effects of the UNDRIP on them.

University of Alabama Call for Papers on Indigenous Education

The University of Alabama is looking for papers to include in their next Philosophies of Indigenous Education or Indigenous Philosophies of Education book. For this volume, they seek to answer these specific questions:

What should education be for indigenous students? Should it reflect their cultures and languages? To what extent? Why? Would such reflection constitute a philosophy of indigenous education? Or, would such a philosophy delve more deeply? Taking aboriginal ways of being and knowing in the Australian context, for example, to what extent should these ways of being and knowing drive curriculum and pedagogy? Why? Who gets to decide that? Can the answers to such questions drive a general philosophy of indigenous education that can inform all cases?

If you’re interested in contributing the deadline is July 1, 2016. Click here to view the call for papers.

AlterNative Call for Papers

autonomy 3Call for Papers on Indigenous Autonomy Projects. Looking to explore the historical and contemporary causes of both the idea of indigenous autonomy and the form it takes.

*Information from http://www.alternative.ac.nz/content/call-papers-indigenous-autonomy-projects

Indigenous peoples from around the world have adopted the idea of autonomy in an attempt to engage with modernity on their own terms. What is remarkable is the range and diversity of the notion of autonomy, from treaty-based territorial autonomy to non-territorial, cultural rights based autonomy projects.

We are calling for papers that explore the historical and contemporary causes of both the idea of indigenous autonomy and the form it takes in specific cases; why do some projects take the form of territorial autonomy while others focus on cultural recognition and rights? We are interested in receiving papers that provide a comparative analysis and review of the successes and drawbacks experienced by different indigenous peoples from around the world in order to draw important lessons for ongoing and future indigenous autonomy projects.
