Current research

Carlos has just completed a jointly authored book with Colin Samson entitled Indigenous Peoples and Colonialism: Global Perspectives (Polity). The book analyses the many common colonial processes which indigenous peoples experience under the dominion of states. It attempts to show that similar processes of dispossession and violation of rights occur in First and Third World Countries.
