Indigenous notions, discourses and practices on human rights accountability:  a case study on oil violence and ecoterritorial conflict in the Peruvian Amazon

The project empirically explores the case of half a century of extractivist violence in Peru’s historical oil circuit and of two decades of indigenous resistance in this part of the Amazon. The project is interdisciplinary in nature, and primarily builds on a decade-long engagement with grassroots/indigenous organizations and on empirical field work, to gain a deeper understanding of indigenous notions, discourses and practices in relation to accountability and (various) duty bearers in this emblematic case.
