Connecting science and indigenous peoples’ practice and knowledge in an increasingly interconnected world – identifying and responding to challenges to natural resource based livelihoods/Rangifer (reindeer & caribou) systems.
Are you in the field of reindeer or caribou research? Have you reflected upon how you interact with local communities and indigenous knowledge keepers in your research? For what reason and for whom is the research important and in what different ways can it be conducted? Are there specific ethical requirements for interacting with indigenous communities – and if so, how are these addressed?
This course provides you with theoretical as well as practical tools and examples aiming to encourage you to pose critical questions and reflect upon methodologies and methods for collaboration and interaction with local stakeholders and indigenous communities.
