UN_01: Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

Primary tabs

This spot outlines the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples from 2007 endorsed by member countries of the United Nations. The main purpose of the declaration is to defend the rights of Indigenous Peoples by pressuring the governments of UN member countries to stop Indigenous rights violations. Though not legally binding, it provides an ethical framework for human rights with standards that can become bylaws and policies at the national and international level.
