Established by the United Nations Human Rights Council in 2007, the Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples provides the Council with expertise and advice on the rights of indigenous peoples, as set out in the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP). It is composed of seven members, serving in their individual capacities.
From 5 to 6 November 2018, the EMRIP will hold a 2-day expert seminar on Indigenous Peoples’ Rights in the Context of Borders, Migration and Displacement, to take place in Chiang Mai, Thailand, hosted by the Centre for Ethnic Studies and Development, Chiang Mai University, Chiang Mai, Thailand. This theme was selected by the Expert Mechanism for its next annual study to be presented to the Council at its 42nd session in September 2019. A draft of the study will be discussed and finalized by the EMRIP during the 12th session of the Expert Mechanism in July 2019.
The objective of the Expert Seminar is to inform the Expert Mechanism on the theme as reflected in UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. The seminar provides an opportunity for exchange among academics, practitioners and other experts on this issue.
