“INCAR and the Center for Intercultural and Indigenous Studies sin agreement of scientific collaboration.”

The director of the CIIR, Dr. Pedro Meje, and the director of INCAR, Dr. Renato Quiñones, met on December 21, 2016 in Santiago to sign a Scientific Collaboration Agreement between these centers. This agreement intends to potentiate a synergistic interaction in the field of coastal anthropology, in particular in the study of the use of the marine territory by the communities of the original inhabitants, such as small-scale aquiculture and the sustainable use of the Coastal Marine Spaces for Original Peoples (ECMPO).

The CIIR is a FONDAP center of excellence dedicated to interdisciplinary and collaborative research in topic linked to original peoples and intercultural relations in Chile, formed by a group of researchers in disciplines such as anthropology, sociology, public health, history, etc., from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, Universidad Diego Portales and the Universidad Academia de Humanismo Cristiano. The CIIR is focused mainly on four action lines to confront problems linked with multicultural recognition: Public policies; Development and Environment; Cultural Heritage; and Subjectivities and Conflicts.
