New keynote speaker

We are sorry to tell you that Professor Joan Martinez-Alier had to cancel his keynote lecture for our IASC2019 conference due to a health problem. For that reason, we want to introduce your our new Keynote Speaker: Wrays Pérez.

Wrays is Pamuk or President of the Autonomous Territorial Government of the Wampi Nation since November 2015. He studied at the Carlos III University of Madrid (Spain), where he was awarded the title of “University Expert in Indigenous People, Human Rights, Governance and Cooperation International”. His long history of leadership in the defense of the collective rights of indigenous peoples began at age 24 in the Amazon basin of Peru. His experience is recognized by international organizations: he has held the presidency of the Intercultural Indigenous University of Latin America and the Caribbean and has been a member of the Binational Technical Team for the Development and Cross-Border Integration between Peru and Ecuador. Under his leadership, the Wampis joined the Ticca Consortium in 2017.
