Information on the 13th session of the Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples


2020-10-12

Docip has the pleasure to forward you the latest information from the secretariat of the Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (EMRIP) on its 13th session that will take place virtually from November 30 to December 4, 2020.

 


 

13th session/ Regional meetings of the Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

 

“The impact of COVID-19 on the rights of Indigenous Peoples under the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples”

The 13th session of the Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, initially scheduled to take place from 8 to12 June 2020, was postponed to take place from 30 November to 4 December due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

In view of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis affecting the travel of members, Indigenous Peoples, Member States and others, the EMRIP decided to convert its postponed 13th into four virtual regional meetings, followed by a wrap up meeting for the EMRIP members and Secretariat only.

The topic of the regional meetings will be, “The impact of COVID-19 on the rights of Indigenous Peoples under the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples”. The outcome of these regional meetings will be recorded in the EMRIP’s annual report.

The regional meetings will be held for only two hours at a time and two regions at a time, as follows:

A.   Africa and North America - Monday 30 November from 15:00 to 17:00 (Geneva time). Interpretation in English, and French.
B.   Pacific and Asia - Tuesday 1 December from 9:00 to 11:00 (Geneva time). Interpretation in English and French.
C.   The Arctic; Central and Eastern Europe, Russian Federation, Central Asia and Transcaucasia - Wednesday 2 December from 15:00 to 17:00 (Geneva time). Interpretation in English, French and Russian
D.   Central and South America and the Caribbean - Thursday 3 December from 15:00 to 17:00 (Geneva time). Interpretation in English, French and Spanish.

For information on how to participate in these regional meetings read the Concept Note and visit the webpage of the Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
