The Indigenous World, IWGIA’s annual global report on the state of indigenous peoples' rights, has been published every year since 1987. 

The Indigenous World documents the state of indigenous peoples' rights in countries on all continents with detailed country reports authored by distinguished experts, indigenous activists and scholars. 

It is our hope that indigenous peoples and their organizations will find the Indigenous World useful in their advocacy work of improving indigenous peoples’ human rights situation. It is also IWGIA’s wish and hope that the Indigenous World will be useful to a wider audience interested in indigenous issues, and that it can be used as a reference book and a basis for obtaining further information on the situation of indigenous peoples worldwide. The Indigenous World is, in that sense, an essential source of information and a tool or those who need to be informed about the most recent issues for indigenous peoples worldwide.
