Chapter Summary

This chapter briefly examines the historical interface of indigenous peoples with the international community, the United Nations (UNs) in particular, that led to the creation of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII). It analyses the mandate and practice of the UNPFII in the area of human rights and its links to other international human rights mechanisms. The mandate of the UNPFII, thus, clearly includes discussing human rights and providing advice in this area to the UN system, through the Council; raising awareness and promoting coordination; and the mainstreaming of indigenous peoples human rights in the UN system. The chapter identifies challenges and opportunities in the Forum's discharge of its human rights mandate. The Permanent Forums challenges in discharging its human rights mandate are as real as those of other international human rights bodies.

Keywords: human rights monitoring; international community; international human rights mechanisms; UN permanent forum on indigenous issues (UNPFII)
