2015 will be a year of important negotiations and agreements on climate change and sustainable development--two topics of great importance for indigenous peoples and to which indigenous peoples have a lot to contribute. Seven years after the adoption of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and in light of the outcomes of the 2014 World Conference on Indigenous Peoples, this edition of The Indigenous World looks at the most significant developments and/or setbacks for indigenous peoples' rights at the national and international level in the past year and at possible ways forward.
In over seventy articles and country reports, The Indigenous World 2015 provides a comprehensive update on the current situation of indigenous peoples and their human rights and reports on the most important developments in international processes of relevance to indigenous peoples during 2014. It is an indispensable tool about issues and developments that have impacted indigenous peoples worldwide.
Indigenous and non-indigenous scholars or activists write the articles contained in The Indigenous World 2015. It is edited and produced by the International Work Group for Indigenous Affairs.
