HS 313F — Ethnicity, Indigeneity and Development

Meets for one-half semester and yields half-course credit.

Explores conflicts between development, conservation, and indigenous peoples and how this relation has evolved. Students look at fundamental dilemmas and potential synergies that exist between indigenous peoples and development agendas, how ethnic conflicts threaten sustainable development, structural and cultural roots of such conflicts, and the role of ethnic exclusion in maintaining and distributing poverty within countries. Usually offered every year.
