Community Insights Group and the University of Strathclyde are pleased to launch the Indigenous Peoples’ Rights and Projects e-learning program.

Course start date: 30 October 2023

Course end date: 08 December 2023

Applications can be made up to: 27 October 2023

Fee: GBP 500

10 self-paced sessions over 6 weeks take participants on a journey of understanding and developing respect for Indigenous Peoples’ rights in the context of projects taking place in or near the lands and waters they use or have traditionally occupied, while enabling access to tools to be used in the workplace. Topics covered include: 

Who are Indigenous Peoples?

 International legal frameworks, standards and Indigenous rights; 

Indigenous rights in national contexts; 

Consultation & FPIC; 

Impact-Benefit Agreements; 


ESIAs for projects on Indigenous lands and waters; 

Indigenous cultural heritage impacts; 

Health impacts;

and Indigenous defenders.

All sessions include interviews with and contributions from practitioners with deep expertise in the field to explain key concepts and share their experiences.

We have drawn on the success of our (lengthier) Social Impact Assessment e-learning program and designed this short, focused course in response to increasing participant requests to develop their skills in recognising and responding to the rights of Indigenous Peoples affected by projects.
