End of Mission Statement by the United Nations
Special Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples,
Victoria Tauli-Corpuz of her visit to Australia, 3 April 2017

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I would like to start by acknowledging the traditional owners of Australia, and pay my respects to their Elders, to their ancestors and the generations to come for they hold the memories, the traditions and future of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation.

In my capacity as Special Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples, I have visited Australia from 20 March to 3 April. I thank the Government for having invited me and for its good cooperation during the visit. During the fifteen day visit, I met high-level representatives of the Federal, State and Territories Governments, members of Parliament and the Senate, members of the Judiciary, the National Congress of Australia's First Peoples, the Australian Human Rights Commission and a broad range of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and representatives as well as civil society organisations working for their rights.

Australia’s Aboriginal peoples face “tsunami” of imprisonment, UN expert finds Imprimir

australiapressGENEVA (4 April 2017) – Australia must reduce the "astounding" rates of imprisonment for indigenous peoples and step up the fight against racism, a United Nations human rights expert has concluded, at the end of an official visit.

The Special Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous people, Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, said: "It is alarming that, while the country has adopted numerous policies to address the socio-economic disadvantage of Aboriginal peoples and those from the Torres Strait Islands, it has failed to respect their rights to self-determination and to full and effective participation in society."

Relatório da missão ao Brasil da Relatora Especial sobre os direitos dos povos indígenas Imprimir

acnudhO Secretariado tem a honra de transmitir ao Conselho de Direitos Humanos o relatório da Relatora Especial sobre os direitos dos Povos Indígenas, Victoria Tauli-Corpuz sobre sua missão ao Brasil de -7 a 17 de março de 2016. O objetivo principal da visita foi identificar e avaliar os assuntos mais importantes que atualmente enfrentam os povos indígenas no país e acompanhar as principais recomendações feitas em 2009 pelo anterior titular do mandato.

O Brasil possui uma série de disposições constitucionais exemplares em relação aos direitos dos povos indígenas e, no passado, foi um líder mundial na área de demarcação de territórios indígenas. Entretanto, nos oito anos que se seguiram à visita de seu predecessor, tem havido uma inquietante ausência de avanços para a implementação de suas recomendações e na solução de antigas questões de vital importância para os povos indígenas. No atual contexto político, as ameaças que os povos indígenas enfrentam podem ser exacerbadas e a proteção de longa data de seus direitos pode estar em risco.
