The Work of the UN Special Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples, Ms. Victoria Tauli-Corpuz

 

"Closing the gap between the recognition of indigenous peoples' rights at the international and national levels and the actual implementation on the ground remains my main pre-occupation."

- Ms. Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, UN Special Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples

 

"She has practiced in her mandate the right to consult with her indigenous sisters and brothers from different socio-cultural regions of the world on the subjects to which she has referred in her reports; and has assured the presence of indigenous women and youth in these consultations."

- Ms. Myrna Cuningham Kain, President, Fondo para el Desarrollo de los Pueblos Indígenas de América Latina y El Caribe (FILAC)

 

"The issues Ms. Tauli-Corpuz analyzes, whether shedding light on the challenges or outlining good examples, invite us all to re-think critically about where our world is going and where indigenous peoples’ stewardship could actually provide answers for all." 

- Ms. Elsa Stamatopoulou, Director, Indigenous Peoples' Rights Program Institute for the Study of Human Rights, Columbia University
