Indigenous Peoples' and Global Change: Re-Framing the dialogue
This presentation situates Indigenous Peoples within the United
Nation's reform agenda, and the processes of Globalisation.
It seeks to provide an overview of the international arena,
and explain the links between the main themes and activity. An
insight into the divergence of voices and responses to the indigenous
peoples' agenda, set the conditions for a further examination
of Government processes of diminishment.
