Indigenous Populations and Poverty: Multi-Disciplinary Approaches

Indigenous Populations and Poverty: Multi-Disciplinary Approaches

4-7 November 2001 | Antigua, Guatemala

Indigenous populations are often found to live under extremely poor conditions. Within many states and territories around the world (in contexts as diverse as the Americas, Africa, Asia, and Oceania) they are among vulnerable groups who have no alternative but to survive and maintain themselves at the margins of society.
The workshop had a multi-disciplinary character, in order to respond adequately to the manifold problems indigenous populations are confronted with.
