Socio-Environmental Rights in Colombia: Insights from indigenous and black leaders

Please join us in our cosponsored event! 

The Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program and the Center for Environmental Justice invites you to a virtual roundtable discussion on Socio-Environmental Rights in Colombia: Insights from Black and Indigenous Leaders. The free, public event will be in Spanish with simultaneous translation.

Ethnic groups in Colombia are increasingly at risk as extractive economies expand into their ancestral lands to open mining and agribusiness frontiers. Leaders from Colombia’s Pacific coast—a region of Indigenous and Black traditional territories—will discuss the rights of their communities, the impact of climate change, and the consequences of human rights violations on their livelihoods.
