The International Institute for Indigenous Resource Management is a law and policy research institute. Established in Denver, Colorado in 1997, the Institute’s cadre of internationally-based legal scholars and researchers work on cutting-edge projects designed to empower native peoples by examining the role the law can play in establishing and enhancing indigenous peoples’ control over and management of their lands and resources. Institute teams also study ways indigenous peoples can assess and manage the impacts of science and technology on their societies and help build and strengthen native legal, technical, management, and other systems and institutions.
