Conversations With Haury featuring U.N. Special Rapporteur José Francisco (Pancho) Calí Tzay, and Regents Professor and Arizona Law IPLP faculty co-chair Robert A. Williams

On February 15, 2021, Haury Program Interim Director Toni Massaro hosted a conversation between U.N. Special Rapporteur José Francisco (Pancho) Calí Tzay and Regents Professor and Arizona Law IPLP faculty co-chair Robert A. Williams. Mr. Calí Tzay mentioned that indigenous communities worldwide face unique challenges in terms of human rights and access to resources. These challenges, Pancho commented, are due to the lack of knowledge of indigenous realities; for example, the majority of Indigenous people worldwide live in urban, not rural areas, which prevents the creation of effective policies. Learn more about Mr. Calí Tzay's work on analyzing the impact of COVID-19 on Indigenous communities worldwide and good practices promoted by the governments of Ecuador, Bolivia, New Zealand, and Australia.
