INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON INDIGENOUS PEOPLE (ICIP):
29-31 JULY 2008, UNIVERSITY OF MALAYA, KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA.
ICIP will focus on contemporary policy, research, issues, interventions and advocacy to address what is widely perceived as the social exclusion, vulnerability and marginalization of indigenous communities in the developed and developing world and to propose programmes and strategies to meet these challenges.
Expressions of interest in the submission of serious original and hitherto unpublished papers, writing and research are, therefore, invited on the following broad issues touching on the future of indigenous peoples. Of particular interest to the Conference is research and discussion that underscores the linkages between indigenous communitiesí value systems and cultures with the sustainability of their natural and environmental resources.
1. Identity, land and ways of living.
3. Indigenous rights to and perspectives on development.
4. Untapped potential of indigenous peoples.
Agenda of the Conference will be centred around the themes identified above and the submissions adjudged acceptable by the conference organizers. Expressions of interest must be formulated in a maximum of one page abstracts in softcopy sent to the organizers by 30 May 2008.
