Context of Indigenous and Local Governance

Winter 2013 quarter

Linda Moon Stumpff natural resource policy, public administration

Increasingly, public administrators confront emerging and existing forms of local and indigenous governance.  The place and voice of such governments within nations has grown with the recognition of human rights and with political and economic growth of these nations within   The U.N. has issued new statements on the rights of such governments that place emphasis on new areas such as entrepreurship, access to resources and new forms of partnership like co-management, co-operation and direct collaboration in the implementation of programs.  We will explore and critique various new institutions, de-centralized bodies and forms of governance on the national and international scenes to develop new and innovative models for working in partnership with local and indigenous governments.
