Indigenous Rights and Legal Pluralism


The debate on the indigenous peoples´ rights raises on a socio-legal management of this. This requires (i) interpreting the legislation from human rights approach, (ii) being part of an intercultural debate (local and global) in planning state action, and (iii) reading the sociocultural circumstances of each country. In this sense, skills and competences based on the recognition of ethnic identity and cultural diversity must be promoted to contribute to the design of intercultural public policies. Particularly understand legal pluralism as a central element of cultural diversity and public management.

The course contributes with learning and reflection on not only the reality of indigenous people, but above all it aims to recognize the possibilities of an adequate exercise of the collective rights of indigenous people. The course will have a global perspective but will pay attention to the Peruvian case.
