Relevance of UNDRIP for researchers

The Marine Ethnoecology Research group at the School of Environmental Studies, University of Victoria, is holding this invitation-only three-day workshop to advance a scientific journal article that outlines the relevance and importance of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) for individual researchers. While the wording of UNDRIP is geared towards states, the intentions contained therein are much more widely applicable. We seek to articulate the importance of UNDRIP for individual researchers. A secondary goal for the workshop is for our research group to spend some much-needed time together in person so we can learn from each other’s interests and skills, and open doors for future research collaborations amongst team members.
