Miguel Gonzalez (PhD, York University) is an adjunct faculty in the International Development Studies program at York University, Toronto, Canada. In recent years Miguel has taught both in the undergraduate and graduate programs in International Development at York University. His current research relates to two broad themes and projects: First, indigenous self-governance and territorial autonomous regimes in Latin America. On this question he has published extensively (see for instance: http://www.fygeditores.com/fgetnicidadynacion.htm) and he co-edited a themed issue for a specialized academic journal in the field on indigenous studies (http://www.alternative.ac.nz). Migue is currently co-editing a thematic issue of the Latin America and Caribbean Ethnic Studies Journal (LACES) on the topic of Indigenous Autonomies in Latin America (tentative date of publication is 2014). Recent publications include a book chapter on Central American Indigenous and Afro-descendants social movements which he has co-authored with leading scholars in the field (http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9781857436747/). Miguel’s second area of interest is the governance of small-scale fisheries (SSF) in the global south, with a particular geographical concentration in the Nicaraguan Caribbean Coast. On this question he has just completed a paper that revolves around the health-related impacts of commercial lobster diving in the Miskitu Coast. Finally, Miguel is a researcher associated with the Global Partnership for Small-Scale Fisheries Research (http://toobigtoignore.net) and with the Centre for Research on Latin America and the Caribbean (CERLAC) at York University.
