Theodore Macdonald "is a Fellow at the University Committee on Human Rights Studies, and a Lecturer in Anthropology and Social Studies at Harvard University. He was Associate Director of the Program on Nonviolent Sanctions and Cultural Survival at Harvard's Weatherhead Center for International Affairs until 2005 and is now a Weatherhead Center Associate. His research and teaching focus on human rights, ethnicity and conflict, Latin American indigenous peoples and the State, common property, and individual/collective property and citizenship rights. His book, Ethnicity and Culture amidst New "Neighbors": The Runa of Ecuador's Amazon Region, reviews the conjunction of many of these issues. He recently undertook the ethnographic research and subsequently served as witness for the plaintiff in the precedent-setting 2001 indigenous land and natural resource rights case, Awas Tingni vs. Nicaragua, heard, and determined in favor of the community, before the Inter-American Court of Human Rights."
