Dr Albert Barume, EMRIP

A decade on from the adoption by the United Nations General Assembly of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) in September 2007, the conference asks what progress has been made in securing indigenous peoples’ rights and what are the challenges remaining? This conference brings together an international group of scholars and activists to share original research and reflections on practice drawing from inter-disciplinary expertise in law, political science, anthropology and sociology.

This conference is jointly organised and funded by: the Human Rights Consortium, School of Advanced Study, University of London; The City Law School, City, University of London; Queen Mary, University of London’s Centre for European and International Legal Affairs; and the University of Lapland.  We are also grateful to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland and the Academy of Finland for additional funding. 

Preliminary conference programme will be uploaded here soon. 

Please note that the registration fee includes coffee/tea, lunch and evening reception as well as online access to the special issue of the International Journal of Human Rights that will be published following the conference.
