Visit to Timor-Leste. Report of the Special Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples Print

sucotimorleste

The Special Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples, Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, visited Timor-Leste from 8 to 16 April 2019.

The present report contains recommendations relating to, inter alia, the formal and customary justice systems, land tenure, consultation and consent, conservation and climate change adaptation measures, education and nutrition.

Timorese indigenous culture and languages are particularly diverse and have been retained throughout colonization and occupation. The vast majority of the population shares indigenous values and spiritual beliefs which are reflected in strong local institutions, the customary justice system and communal land management. Indigenous practices have translated into important gains in environmental protection and biodiversity that can serve as inspiring examples for other countries. Further harmonization between the formal and customary justice systems is important to strengthen access to justice for all. Timor-Leste has made strong commitments to human rights standards and national rights-based development policies; however, additional resource allocations are required to ensure their effective implementation and monitoring, notably in the areas of education, health and nutrition.

Visit to Ecuador, Report of the Special Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples Print

ecuadorunsr219

The report reviews the situation of the indigenous peoples of Ecuador on the basis of information received by the Special Rapporteur during her visit to the country between 19 and 29 November 2018.

The Special Rapporteur takes note of the current openness to dialogue between theGovernment and the indigenous peoples. The 2008 Constitution provides a good basis for moving towards a new plurinational and intercultural State model. It is imperative that the Government give priority to addressing structural problems, in particular by guaranteeing the indigenous peoples' rights to their lands, territories and natural resources, to respect for their authorities and justice systems, to proper operationalization of consultations, and to intercultural implementation of their economic, social and cultural rights.

Informe de la Relatora Especial sobre los derechos de los pueblos indígenas sobre su visita a México

Nota de la Secretaría

En el informe se examina la situación de los pueblos indígenas en México con base en la información recibida por la Relatora Especial sobre los derechos de los pueblos indígenas durante su visita al país del 8 al 17 de noviembre de 2017 e investigación independiente.

La Relatora Especial observa que, desde la visita oficial realizada por el anterior Relator Especial Rodolfo Stavenhagen en 2003, y a pesar de los compromisos contraídos posteriormente por México en materia de derechos humanos, los pueblos indígenas continúan enfrentando graves desafíos en el ejercicio de sus derechos humanos.

Las actuales políticas del desarrollo basadas en megaproyectos (extractivos, energéticos, turísticos, inmobiliarios, de agricultura, por ejemplo) constituyen un reto mayúsculo para el goce de los derechos humanos de los pueblos indígenas. A la falta de autodeterminación y de consulta previa, libre, informada y culturalmente adecuada se suman conflictos territoriales, desplazamientos forzosos, criminalización y violencia contra pueblos indígenas que defienden sus derechos.

Todos estos problemas se están desarrollando en un contexto de profunda desigualdad, pobreza y discriminación de los pueblos indígenas que limitan su acceso a la justicia, educación, salud y otros servicios básicos.

Report of the Special Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples on her mission to Brazil

Note by the Secretariat

The Secretariat has the honour to transmit to the Human Rights Council the report of the Special Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples, Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, on her mission to Brazil from 7 to 17 March 2016. The main objective of the visit was to identify and assess the main issues currently facing indigenous peoples in the country and to follow up on key recommendations made in 2009 by the previous mandate holder.

Brazil has a number of exemplary constitutional provisions pertaining to the rights of indigenous peoples and was, in the past, a leader in the area of demarcation of indigenous peoples' territories. However, in the eight years since the visit of the previous mandate holder, there has been a disturbing absence of progress in the implementation of his recommendations and the resolution of long-standing issues of key concern to indigenous peoples. The Special Rapporteur noted a worrying regression in the protection of indigenous peoples' rights. In the current political context, the threats facing indigenous peoples may be exacerbated and the long-standing protections of their human rights may be at risk.
