Applied Practitioners and Indigenous North American Populations: Vulnerabilities and Exclusions as a result of Globalization
The growing challenges facing applied practitioners working with indigenous North American populations in the 21st century are multidimensional, and include human rights challenges, food insecurity, disease and health problems, as well as natural resource management and stewardship. This roundtable seeks to explore the challenges facing applied practitioners concerning the impacts of globalization on the peoples we work with, and especially on the emerging exclusions or vulnerabilities such impacts may be having. Further, this panel will reciprocally explore how these factors are impacting applied practice and social science research, especially the vulnerabilities and exclusions that are taking place within the applied and research fields?
Abstracts Due: October 15, 2009. Please email Peter N. Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information or to participate in roundtable.
