Abstract

This article focuses on key issues and recent developments concerning indigenous peoples’involvement in international decisionmaking affecting their rights and interests.Based on ahuman rights-based approach to participation, it suggests that while a number of positivesteps have been taken to allow indigenous peoples the possibility to take part to, andinfluence, relevant intergovernmental decision-making processes, there’s a need toprovide their own self-governing institutions and organisations with a more influentialstatus than that granted to civil society organisations (CSOs) generally, whereby they canexercise different levels of participatory rights, depending upon the nature of theindigenous rights and interests at stake, and on the anticipated impact of the proposeddecisions on them.
