Renewing Indigenous Economies Research Workshop


  • Hoover Institution at Stanford University (map)

PURPOSE:
The purpose of this workshop is to explore how tribal governance structures, jurisdiction, property rights, and the rule of law integrate into a fabric for stimulating indigenous economies. The main focus will be on indigenous economies in the United States, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia because these four countries share a history of British colonization and have thus inherited a common institutional framework within which tribal economies operate.

We have commissioned original research in the areas of economics, political science, and law.
