  1. 1. PRESENTED BY THE AMERICAN UNIVERSITY WASHINGTON COLLEGE OF LAW INTERNATIONAL VISITING SCHOLARS PROGRAM American University Washington College of Law 4801 Massachusetts Avenue, NW Washington DC 20016 Thursday, April 16, 2015 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM JD Student Lounge – 6th Floor Dr. Ruslan Garipov "Indigenous Peoples’ Rights in Contemporary Russia” Dr. Ruslan Garipov is a 2007 Fulbright Scholar, George F. Kennan Scholar at the Woodrow Wilson Center, Visiting Scholar at WCL, and Adjunct Professor at the AU School of International Service. Dr. Garipov has a PhD in International law and focuses on International Law and Relations, Human Rights, International Security and Russian Foreign Policy. He is passionate about Indigenous Peoples’ Studies and focuses on North American Indians and Russian Indigenous Minorities’ issues. Dr. Garipov also has a position of Associate Professor at the International and European Law Department, Kazan Federal University, Republic of Tatarstan, Russia. He is also an editorial staff member of the Arctic Review on Law and Politics (Norway) and Kazan Journal of International Law (Russia). His current research project, “Indigenous Peoples’ Rights Development in Russia and the U.S.: International Legal and Domestic Issues,” examines the development of Russian Indigenous Minority Peoples’ and Native Americans’ rights, with a particular focus on self-determination, land rights, and environmental issues in both countries. Dr. Garipov will discuss the existing system of international legal and domestic protection of indigenous minority peoples’ interests in contemporary Russia. This is an especially urgent topic due to the number of indigenous minority peoples in Russia who still keep to their traditional way of life (reindeer herding, hunting, fishing, and gathering) and the problems they face today dealing with extractive industries on their lands. The talk will be based on Dr. Garipov’s personal experience and field work in the Russian North, where he met with local NGO leaders, authorities, and representatives of indigenous minority peoples (Nenets). Dr. Garipov draws independent conclusions and offers recommendations to improve and develop the existing system of protecting the interests of Russian indigenous minority peoples carrying on their traditional way of life during resource extraction on their territories.
