  • UN mechanisms of indigenous peoples’ rights;

  • Bilateral, multilateral cooperation, international financial institutions and business sector with IPs;

  • Indigenous peoples challenges with development; and

  • International processes and agendas relevant to indigenous peoples in Africa.

This course is aimed at members of NGOs, government officials, policy makers, legal academics, activists, researchers and students who are interested in the rights of indigenous peoples on the continent.


Fees

The course fee is ZAR 3 000.00 and covers tuition, course materials, teas and lunch but excludes transport and accommodation costs.
