22nd Session of the Working Group on Indigenous Populations

From the 19th to the 23rd July the 22nd Session of the Working Group on Indigenous Populations of the UN Human Rights Commission took place in Geneva. In the session more than 1,000 representatives of indigenous populations and communities throughout the world met with Government representatives, non governmental organisations and different UN agencies.

In this yearly meeting, the most important with regards to indigenous peoples rights, indigenous communities have the opportunity to increase their awareness of their rights. Its a place in which participants are able to discuss possible solutions to their problems, including the establishment of criteria on land rights and cultural rights.

 The central theme on this occasion was Indigenous Peoples and Conflict Resolution. Participants examined the principle causes of conflicts between indigenous population and states, including different points of view with respect to ownership of land and its resources. It is important to underline the recommendation made with respect to this issue of the importance of ensuring that indigenous peoples exercise their free, informed consent in relation to decisions that affect them directly.
