What do we do ?

Docip Office in Brussels was established to assist and support indigenous peoples in advocating for their rights in the EU.

  1. Information: we work in Brussels to inform you (through Docip's communication channels) about (a) the EU system of human rights, (b) the EU agenda, and (c) the possibilities of action for indigenous peoples to address human rights violations.

  2. Connecting link: we relay information between indigenous peoples and EU decision-makers (when a region or an indigenous community faces serious difficulties, whether in regard to human rights abuses or issues related to development, environment, economic or social situations, etc.)

  3. Support in advocacy: we assist and support indigenous peoples who wish (a) to raise awareness of indigenous peoples issues on the ground, (b) to advocate for the promotion and protection of their human rights, and (c) to contribute with the EU in making indigenous peoples an EU priority.

To this end, Docip Office in Brussels is at your entire disposal at the following e-mail address: eu(at)docip.org. We can support you at all stages and provide you with the relevant contacts, ensure the coordination and the follow-up with EU institutions, as well as during your visit in Brussels.

Emergencies: for human rights and activists in danger

The EU has formal and informal ways of taking action to help human rights defenders in danger/at risk:

  • The EU Parliament can make emergency resolutions denouncing an imminent threat.
  • The EU Commission has small grants to provide immediate financial support to activists in danger.
  • EU staff abroad (EU delegations, MEPs on mission abroad, etc.) may decide to act via diplomatic channels or attract media attention to help the person in danger.
  • NGOs in Brussels can network to take joint action to help the activist.

If you are facing imminent danger, contact the EU delegation in your country and ProtectDefenders.eu. If you need additional information, please send an email to eu(at)docip.org
