Dear Friend,

HRC, CEDAW, FWG, LCIPP, IGC - the UN acronyms are gaining space again in our agenda, and I'm happy to announce you two long awaited meetings: the general discussion on the rights of indigenous women and girls at CEDAW and the 41<sup>st</sup> session of the Intergovernmental Committee on Intellectual Property and Genetic Resources, Traditional Knowledge and Folklore (IGC) at WIPO. There are also two interesting UN reports (HRC), a draft declaration (HLPF), and two new publications fresh from the press. 

I wish you a pleasant reading, a happy last weekend of spring or autumn, and a beautiful celebration of the upcoming solstice.

Warm regards,

Pascal
