Traditional Knowledge & Indigenous Peoples

Author(s): | Publication year: 2010

In 2007, the L'auravetl'an Information & Education Network of Indigenous Peoples (LIENIP) organized a series of educational conferences, aimed at fostering greater understanding on the nature and evolution of this phenomenon and encouraging mutually beneficial relationships among representatives of indigenous communities, academia, professional entities and international organizations. This publication is comprised of several articles written for and speeches made at these events, and also includes a glossary of related concepts. It is made possible thanks to LIENIP's collaboration with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The publication is offered in English and Russian.
