• DESCRIPTION

Originally this Theme Group was denominated “Territory, Ethnic Territoriality and Culture in Human Rights”, but it was decided to change to “Territory, Ethnicity and Human Rights” in the sense of greater precision to the statement. It aims to contribute to the theoretical-methodological discussion, knowledge production and extensionist action, deliberately interdisciplinary, based on the lives and experiences of natives and quilombola groups, as well as rural and urban associations and communities. It is also dedicated to socio-spatial movements with diasporas caused from ethnic identities that are manifested both in land conflict and in defense of intangible heritage and human rights.
