Rhineland Lecture: Indigenous Laws and Human Rights in Latin America

The legal structures of Latin American States reflect their cultural diversity. Yet, the attempt to recognise indigenous legal orders is a comparatively new phenomenon. The Rule of Law Programme of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation aims to promote the dialogue between indigenous leaders and state authorities in the region. Sometimes, the community-focused approach of indigenous laws comes into conflict with traditional international human rights law and its focus on the individual. In his lecture, Hartmut Rank, head of the Rule of Law Programme Latin America of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation, will explore this tension. We are looking forward to fruitful discussions.


This lecture is part of the Rhineland Lectures in International Law series, which seeks to combine theory and practice in international law, and to show different approaches to issues in international law.
