Indigenous Peoples and Regional Human Rights Systems
- Thursday 30 June 2022
- International Criminal Law, Justice and Indigenous Cultures
Regional human rights systems have often been at the forefront of relevant developments in the rights of indigenous peoples. These systems usually enjoy less institutional constraints than international criminal tribunals and are able to address violations from broader perspectives. This panel will consider how regional human rights mechanisms have approached claims of violations against Indigenous peoples’ rights. The panellists may discuss:
- How do different human rights mechanisms approach the rights of indigenous peoples? What are their limitations and what can they achieve;
- The interplay - if any - between regional human rights mechanisms and international criminal courts and tribunals in delivering justice to Indigenous peoples for violations which might amount to international crimes. What can international criminal justice learn from their experiences?
Moderator: Dr. Mamadou Hébie, Associate Professor of International Law, Leiden University
