The book documents and analyses the many forms of racism that indigenous peoples all over the world are still facing at the beginning of the new millenium. Although many national constitutions prohibit racial discrimination, indigenous peoples are facing pervasive racial discrimination in their daily lives, which has far-reaching consequenses for their well-being and human rights situation. It is a major responsibility of the international community to address the extreme racial discrimination and marginalization faced by indigenous peoples the world over and to safeguard their human rights. This book is published in connectionn with the UN "World Conference against Racism, Xenophobia, and Related Intolerance" held in South Africa 2001 and it contains articles by experts from throughout the world.
