On the International Day of Indigenous People, Daksha Fellowship is organizing a session of #DakshaMasterclass on 'Forest Rights Legislation: Stocktaking of Human Rights of Indigenous People in India'.

Date: Sunday, 9 August 2020

Time: 5:00 PM IST

Indigenous people share a special bond with their land and have a distinctive culture, tradition and knowledge system. In India, there are more than 700 ethnic groups officially recognised as Scheduled Tribes (STs) and many more which are yet not officially recognised. The Scheduled Tribes and Other Traditional Forest Dwellers (Recognition of Forest Rights) Act, 2006 (FRA) is a significant legislation which intends to address the historic injustice.

Speaker: Dr Suchitra Menon, Faculty at Daksha Fellowship

The session will focus on:

· An overview of Indigenous rights in India

· Legal and policy developments

· Forest Rights Act 2006 and the paradigm shift in forest law

· Bureaucratic tangle and lack of accountability

· Dilution of forest governance legislative framework

· Significance of adaptive co-management for forest rights governance
