      Indigenous Rights, Globalization and Federalism

      Theme: During Day I of the conference on Indigenous Rights,
      Globalization and Federalism, participants will explore Indigenous rights in
      both the international and the domestic context. Discussions will focus on
      how Indigenous rights initiatives in international forums have implications
      for domestic law and how domestic law is linked international standards.

      Particular attention will be paid to protecting Indigenous cultural
      nowledge, and the impact of globalization on Indigenous cultural knowledge.

      On Day II, participants will explore the exercise of Indigenous Rights
      within a federal context, with particular attention to recent Supreme Court
      of Canada decisions and decisions related to the duty to consult.

      Participants will also explore federalism, and the need to make greater
      space for Indigenous rights.
