Introduction

As part of its mandate to facilitate relations between the EU and indigenous peoples, Docip provides direct assistance to delegates who wish to inform the EU of local issues having an impact on their communities.

In addition, upon request by the parties, Docip organises meetings between indigenous delegates and the different European institutions about general issues affecting the indigenous peoples of the world.

Brussels meeting (June 2016)

During this 4-day visit to the European institutions (13 June to 16 June) 14 indigenous delegates from the 7 regions presented the main issues affecting the indigenous peoples of the world to the EU.

The first day was devoted to a working session with members of the European Commission and the European External Action Service on the subject of the problems indigenous peoples face, as well as an informal meeting organised among the indigenous delegates in order to identify the most important problems which they felt ought to be presented to the European Parliament the following day.

On the second day, the indigenous delegates explained a few of the main issues affecting their communities to the European Parliament in a meeting that lasted 2 hours, hosted and chaired by Ms Hautala (MEP) in the presence of Mr Ville (Director "Human Development and Migration", EuropeAid - European Commission) and Mr. Serri (Deputy Head of Division Human Rights, Global and Multilateral Issues, European External Action Service).

On the third day the indigenous delegates had the opportunity to participate in the "European Development Days" organised by the European Commission.
