Rights of the Indigenous People
Client : Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR)
The United Nations Human Rights Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) works to promote and protect human rights that are guaranteed under international law.
One of its mandates consists of improving human rights protection of Indigenous Peoples through strategies such as strengthening relevant legislations, policies and practices, including of indigenous peoples themselves, while promoting key human rights standards, such as the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).
- the UNDRIP is technically complex and extensive, often with jargon that might be difficult for the public to understand.
- OHCHR would like to transform this document into an accessible and engaging course.
- To raise greater awareness amongst the public on specific rights recognized in the UN Declaration and the various UN mechanisms that defend and protect these rights.
- Module One: Explaining the multiple rights of indigenous peoples under the UNDRIP
- Module Two: Discover the United Nations human rights system and the various charter and treaty-based mechanisms available to promote and protect the rights of indigenous peoples.
- The use of colourful and vivid bespoke illustrations that reflect the rich diversity and cultural backgrounds of indigenous peoples
- Fictional case studies adapted from real world scenarios
- The training has been published live on the OHCHR website and is now available to the public for learning
