News: Launch of the publication “World Heritage Sites and Indigenous Peoples’ Rights”
Friday 14th November 17.30 to 19.00, at the WIN Pavilion
Join us for the launch of a publication by IWGIA, FPP and Gundjeihmi Aboriginal Corporation on “World Heritage Sites and Indigenous Peoples’ Rights”, chaired by Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, UN Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
This book includes 20 case studies of World Heritage sites from around the world, with some relevant background articles. The case studies explore and document, from a human rights perspective, indigenous peoples’ experiences with World Heritage sites and with the processes of the World Heritage Convention.
They identify recurring concerns and systemic shortcomings in the implementation of the Convention, as well as opportunities the Convention may provide for indigenous peoples and the defence and promotion of their human rights.
