Seven years after the adoption of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, The Indigenous World 2015 looks at the most significant developments and setbacks for indigenous peoples’ rights at the national and international level during the previous year and at indigenous peoples’ assessments of possible ways forward.

With 69 articles and country reports, this edition of The Indigenous World gives a comprehensive update on the current situation of indigenous peoples and their human rights, and reports on notable developments in international processes relevant to indigenous peoples in 2014. It is an indispensable tool for those who need to be informed about the most recent issues and developments that impact indigenous peoples worldwide.

2014 saw the celebration of the first World Conference on Indigenous Peoples. Indigenous Peoples proactively influenced the themes and content of the Outcome Document to mirror many of their priorities established in the Alta Outcome Document, and the highest body of the UN committed to actively advancing the implementation of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
