Afro-Descendants: Collective Land Rights in Latin America

The Rapoport Center is engaged in a multi-year research project on Afro-Descendant land rights in Latin America. Each spring break, a delegation of professors and students will travel to a different Latin American country to assess the local land rights situation. So far, Rapoport Center delegations have traveled to Colombia, Brazil, and Ecuador and written reports about their findings.
