International Work Group for Indigenous Affairs (IWGIA)

International Work Group for Indigenous Affairs (IWGIA)
The IWGIA was formed in the 1960s to address the issue of human rights of Indigenous peoples. There are a lot of resources and publications regarding topics like climate change, self-determination, racism, sustainable development, political participation, international and national policies and international and national policies.

It’s interesting that the organization, which is based in Europe and funded in part by the European Union, has country profiles for nations in Africa, Asia, the Arctic, and Latin America, but not for North America, Australia, or New Zealand. Perhaps this is due to the lack of support these countries have given to United Nations Indigenous efforts. Even so the resources and links are quite well developed.
