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.
