Center for World Indigenous Studies (CWIS) & The Fourth World Journal (FWJ)

This SPECIAL ISSUE is focused on Extractive Industries and Indigenous Peoples and strategies for indigenous nations to prevent, control or regulate exploitation of their lands and resources. Most critically our authors examine methods for nations to implement to stop violence against their peoples, lands and the environment. This issue directly responds to requests by indigenous nations received by CWIS in the last few years for details about problems and capabilities needed by nations to reverse colonial exploitation of their people and lands by states, transnational corporations and complicit banks and investors.

“If we take action, the right action – as the report [on Biological Diversity] proposes – we can transition to a sustainable planet.” […] Many good things are happening around the world and these should be celebrated and encouraged […] We have to act now. It is not too late. Otherwise, our children and grandchildren will curse us because we will leave behind a polluted, degraded and unhealthy planet.” – Elizabeth Maruma Mrema, executive secretary, UN Convention on Biological Diversity
