Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Indigenous peoples around the world suffered from experiences of colonialism. Even today, these peoples often live in a semi-colonial situation. The worldwide indigenous mobilization wants to overcome this neo-colonialism and eliminate historical injustice.
In the seminar, the historical background of conflicts over land, natural resources, cultural property and self-government rights are dealt with. Can historical injustices be redressed through today’s human rights regulations? The examples can be taken geographically according to the interests of the participants from all parts of the world, but should be based on the experiences of indigenous peoples.

Students are expected to write a scientific paper (with critical footnotes, 70.000 characters + abstract), and to present the result of their research. The students have to submit a provisional research paper latest at January 13, 2021, and the final version of their works latest at April 30, 2021.
