The ITN Governance in Conflict and the Ghent Centre for Global Studies are honoured to invite you to the UGent SDG lecture by Deborah Delgado Pugley (PUCP, Lima) on the "Participation of indigenous peoples in the UN political process on climate change” on October 15. See announcement below. register here: https://www.ugent.be/en/research/devcooperation/sdgsessions.htm

Indigenous peoples from different parts of the world participate in multi-scalar processes that shape changes in public policy concerning global commons, such as the atmosphere and oceans. They have managed to deepen the recognition of collective rights and generate new political and legal instruments. How do they work to achieve this? What is the impact of their action? What does it teach us about contemporary politics?

Deborah Delgado Pugley is Professor and Researcher of Sociology at PUCP (Peru).  Her research focuses on global environmental politics, sustainable development policies and environmental issues at the community level. Recent projects include the impact assessment of oil spills in amazonian communities and local universities involvement in climate policies. She is interested in indigenous social movements, human and environmental rights, natural resources management, climate change policies related to forests (REDD) and development. She holds a PhD in Development Studies and Sociology at the Université Catholique de Louvain and the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales of Paris. She is currently a visiting researcher with the Governance in Conflict Network at the department of Conflict and Development in Ghent.
