FPIC as Indigenous Peoples’ Empowerment Tool: Case Studies from Nepal and Russia (2022)

Responding to requests from social development practitioners, CCCS’ Dr. Greg Guldin penned an article describing the origin, contents, and approach of a new paradigm in Indigenous communities and project interactions. Entitled the “Indigenous Peoples Participation & Partnership Paradigm”, the new approach focuses on infusing the FPIC principles of inclusion, transparency, and self-empowerment to all project interactions with Indigenous Peoples: from first consultations, to the FPIC process itself, to the implementation of community or Indigenous Peoples development plans. It was published in 2022 in Resettlement in Asian Countries: Legislation, Administration and Struggles for Rights by Routledge.
