Welcome to the ILO Training Tool Box on Indigenous Peoples' Rights.

"The world can no longer ignore indigenous peoples. The world has come to grips with the reality that Indigenous Peoples have survived the worst forms of colonization, they have survived the worst situations of poverty - We are still around!"

Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, Chairperson of the UN Permanent Forum for Indigenous Peoples in the film "Making a Difference" 2001

Within the last 30 years, indigenous peoples have struggled both locally and internationally for recognition of their existence as peoples and for their rights. At the international level, the result has been the creation of a wide range of international instruments and processes aimed at securing indigenous peoples' human rights. Among these are:

  • The ILO Convention No. 169 on Indigenous and Tribal Peoples;
  • The UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, and;
  • The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

The ILO Training Tool Box provides a series of materials for learning more about these instruments and processes. Furthermore, the Tool Box contains information on a wide range of other issues relevant to indigenous peoples such as development, child labour, forced labour, discrimination etc.

The ILO Tool Box is a training material aimed at giving indigenous peoples all over the world access to information on the instruments and processes relevant to them and to improve their knowledge on how these instruments can be used in their efforts to improve their living conditions and have their rights recognised locally, regionally as well as internationally. Likewise, it is our hope that the training material can be used by development agencies and government officials to widen their understanding and knowledge when dealing with indigenous peoples issues.

The existence of international conventions and declarations are of great importance, but only if the people concerned know about their contents and know how to use them.
