Indigenous Peoples’ Rights

The Indigenous Peoples’ Rights Program promotes the exchange among academics and experts, both indigenous and non-indigenous, through the organization of international conferences and workshops on cutting edge indigenous issues that explore current and ongoing challenges pertaining to Indigenous Peoples’ rights and well-being. The program collaborates with relevant international organizations, academic institutions and indigenous and other civil society organizations to encourage interdisciplinary approaches to current issues in Indigenous Peoples’ studies.

The Indigenous Peoples’ Rights Program promotes multidisciplinary research, much of which has broad public policy implications. This research is inspired by the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (2007) and the challenges in its implementation, as well as the broad lines of study identified by the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues and the Expert Mechanism on Indigenous Peoples’ Rights, among others.
