Special issue - Rights of indigenous and tribal peoples
Our colleague, Peter Larsen, contributed to a special issue of the International Journal of Human Rights (vol 24, double issue 2 & 3) about one of the most significant, yet largely overlooked, international rights instruments concerning indigenous peoples: the ILO Convention 169 on the rights of indigenous and tribal peoples.The collection of articles offers a highly needed critical perspective bringing together practitioners, institutional actors, indigenous leaders and academics in an attempt to take stock of nearly 30 years of its existence. The collection of articles covers both national and global processes offering insights into the kinds of policy challenges faced on the ground as well as global spheres of decision-making. A key message from all contributors is about the huge potential for boosting both ratification and implementation efforts of the Convention in order to make a real difference.
