Urban Indians & Cultural Rights: the Limits of Multicultural Liberalism

Location
Greenleaf Conference Room – Inside 100a Jones Hall

Daniel Bonilla Lecture
Urban Indians and Cultural Rights: The limits of Multicultural Liberalism
CIPR Seminar Series, Co-sponsored with the Payson Center for International Development

Multicultural liberalism claims indigenous identity is structured by ancestral and rural territories, wild nature, past cultural practices, and subsistence economy, and defines, on this basis, who is deserving of particular cultural rights. But according to scholar and lawyer Daniel Bonilla, this idea clashes with the reality of many contemporary Indians, now in urban settings and part of the market economy, and fails to recognize them adequately in the political community.

The Center for Inter-American Policy and Research and the Law School’s Payson Center for International Development invite you to examine these issues at a talk by Daniel Bonilla entitled “Urban Indians and Cultural Rights: the Limits of Multicultural Liberalism” on March 28, 2011. Dr. Bonilla is a Law Professor and Director of the Public Interest Law Group at Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia.

Daniel Bonilla holds a doctorate from Yale Law School where he is also an Associate Research Scholar, Robina Foundation Human Rights Fellow, and Lecturer of Law. A former Fullbright fellow, Bonilla received his law degree from Universidad de los Andes and has been a visiting professor at other institutions including the Oñati International Institute for the Sociology of Law, the Office of High Commissioner for Human Rights of Guatemala, University of Texas School of Law, Georgia State University College of Law, Fordham University and Universidad Nacional de Colombia. He has several awards for excellence in teaching, and is the author of numerous books, chapters, and scholarly articles.
