Indigenous Peoples' and Minority Rights
The Indigenous Peoples' and Minority Rights Project of the Human Rights Consortium provides a national focal point for leading, facilitating and promoting policy-oriented research into the promotion and protection of the rights of Indigenous peoples and national, ethnic, religious and linguistic minorities. By hosting conferences, workshops, seminars and short courses, and by initiating and facilitating publishing, the project will bring together scholars, practitioners and activists in the area to stimulate discussion and collaboration and enhance relevant policy impact nationally and internationally.
Project members are among the academic friends of the UN Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and have also offered support to the UN Independent Expert on Minority Issues, among other UN agencies.
The Project also works in close collaboration with the UK Network on Minority Groups and Human Rights. Read the newsletter of the UK Network on Minority Groups and Human Rights.
