Secondly the following topic was presented "Indigenous institutions and national legal traditions: articulations and contradictions".

The second day focussed on the theme "International Indigenous law today: Global, national and local scales". The first session dealt with : "Circulation and appropriation of international standards by the state apparatuses" and the second one : "Local mobilization of indigenous rights: actors, strategies, organizations".

The third day was organised around two round tables involving all participants : «The efficiency of law in Aboriginal Strategies: the construction of a globalized imaginary» and in the afternoon : «Does indigenous governance translate into well-being for indigenous peoples? resistance and contradictions».
