The Coalition

The Coalition for the Human Rights of Indigenous Peoples promotes the full and effective implementation of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. We urge that:

Governments, in conjunction with Indigenous Peoples, use the Declaration as the basis for reviewing and reforming laws and policies to ensure that Indigenous Peoples’ rights are upheld without discrimination. A legislative approach to implementation ensures the ongoing commitment to the Declaration.

Courts and human rights tribunals use the Declaration as a relevant and persuasive source in interpreting Indigenous human rights and related state obligations.
