Carmen, Andrea

In conclusion, the International Indian Treaty Council submitted the following recommendations:
1. That the EMRIP Study recognize, support and affirm the OAS Declaration Text Article XXIII, relevant CERD recommendations and other advances in the international arena affirming the rights in Treaties as understood and interpreted by Indigenous Peoples and advancing redress and access to justice in this regard.
2. That the EMRIP Study recommend that States and UN system implement bi-lateral, fully participatory processes for redress and restitution of rights affirmed in treaties, respecting their original spirit and intent as understood and interpreted by the Indigenous Peoples and utilizing the normative framework provided by the UN Declaration on the Rights of Peoples.
3. That the ERMIP Study recommend that the development of such effective, participatory international processes to resolve conflicts and redress violations related to Treaties and Agreements be included as focus for the 2014 World Conference on Indigenous Peoples
