Indigenous Economics Assembly

Indigenous Economics Assembly

Indigenous Economics

Principal Investigator: Peter Victor.

Funding: SSHRC Connection Grant.

Term: 2021-2022.

The project supports the first collaborative Indigenous Economics Conference held in partnership by the Canadian Society for Ecological Economics (CANSEE) and Indigenous Climate Action (ICA). The Assembly that took place virtually from June 10-12, 2021 brought together scholars, students, business leaders, organizers, policy-makers and community members to develop and share educational resources that sit at the intersection of Indigenous rights and climate justice. The aim of the Assembly is to promote Indigenous voices as agents of change and knowledge-keepers, and to amplify contributions to knowledge both within academia and among community practitioners. In line with SSHRC's Indigenous Research guidelines, the Assembly has been created by and with Indigenous Peoples, and will place great emphasis on lived experience, the co-creation of knowledge, and identifying and addressing community needs.
