Fourth World

Center for World Indigenous Studies, the premier think tank serving the Fourth World, publishes papers and archives documents for scholars and activists worldwide: Forum for Global Exchange (articles, news and essays), Fourth World Documentation (collected treatises and occasional papers), Fourth World Eye (a daily ezine), and Fourth World Journal (an annual peer-reviewed academic publication). Look to see more from CWIS in 2014 during the lead up to the World Conference on Indigenous Peoples at the United Nations in New York City, September 23-4.

In his op-ed on the vocabulary of indigenous autonomy, CWIS Chair Rudolph C. Ryser explains the difference between the rights of peoples and the exercise of governmental power.
