The UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples for Access to Justice, Redress, Restitution, and Non-recurrence Regarding Violation of Rights Affirmed in Treaties Between Indigenous Nations/States

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
