This was prepared as our contribution to the 21st session of the UN Permanent Forum with the theme of “Indigenous peoples, business, autonomy and the human rights principles of due diligence, including free, prior and informed consent”.
This briefing paper provides information regarding the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights -UNGPs, the UNGP+10 Roadmap , as well as the work of the UN Working Group on Business and Human Rights- WGBHR in relation to Indigenous Peoples’ rights. It also presents some initiatives undertaken by IPRI and its ally organizations to advance further implementation of UNGPs to ensure respect for the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples -UNDRIP and contribute to the end of the violence and criminalization against Indigenous Peoples in the context of business operations.
