Additional Training Opportunities in Madison

April 15-17, 2008. Conflict Resolution and Negotiation Tools for Cultural and Natural Resource Projects

Laws and regulations related to cultural and natural resources often require participatory processes that can be mired in conflict and misunderstanding. Projects frequently can be more effectively navigated when stakeholders use collaborative processes to identify and resolve problems during consultation. Learn how to design and manage a collaborative process and how to use a range of tools associated with negotiation and consensus building through participatory role-plays, interactive exercises, and case studies.

September 8-9, 2008. Native American Cultural Property Law

Review the use of federal, state, and tribal law to manage and protect Native American cultural property under NAGPRA, ARPA, the Antiquities Act, NHPA, NEPA, AIRFA, The Indian Arts and Crafts Act, Sacred Sites, and selected state and tribal codes, with special emphasis on the collections aspects of NAGPRA. Discussion will cover the government-to-government obligations of federal and state agencies, the fiduciary responsibility to tribes, and applications related to cultural property through human rights law (sec. 1983), contract and tort applications, and intellectual/intangible property law.
