OFFICE OF THE HIGH COMMISSIONER FOR HUMAN RIGHTS






Study of the problem of discrimination against indigenous populations
Economic and Social Council Resolution 1982/34

The Economic and Social Council,


Recalling its resolution 1589 (L) of 21 May 1971, resolutions 22 (XXXVII)

of 10 March 1981 and 1982/19 of 10 March 1982 of the Commission on

Human Rights and resolutions 8 (XXIV) of 18 August 1971, 5 (XXXIII) of

10 September 1980 and 2 (XXXIV) of 8 September 1981 of the

Sub-Commission on Prevention of Discrimination and Protection of Minorities,
Recognizing the urgent need to promote and to protect the human rights

and fundamental freedoms of indigenous populations,


Bearing in mind the concerns expressed in this regard at the World

Conference to Combat Racism and Racial Discrimination in 1978,


Believing that special attention should be given to appropriate avenues

of recourse at the national, regional and international levels in order to

advance the promotion and protection of the human rights and fundamental

freedoms of indigenous populations,


Mindful of the conclusions of the Sub-Commission on Prevention of

Discrimination and Protection of Minorities and of the Commission on Human

Rights that the plight of indigenous peoples is of a serious and pressing

nature and that special measures are urgently needed to promote and protect

the human rights and fundamental freedoms of indigenous populations,
1. Authorizes the Sub-Commission on Prevention of Discrimination and

Protection of Minorities to establish annually a working group on indigenous

populations which shall meet for up to five working days before the annual

sessions of the Sub-Commission in order to review developments pertaining to

the promotion and protection of the human rights and fundamental freedoms of

indigenous populations, including information requested by the

Secretary-General annually from Governments, specialized agencies, regional

intergovernmental organizations and non-governmental organizations in

consultative status, particularly those of indigenous peoples, to analyse such

materials, and to submit its conclusions to the Sub-Commission bearing in mind

the report of the Special Rapporteur of the Sub-Commission;
2. Decides that the Working Group shall give special attention to the

evolution of standards concerning the rights of indigenous populations, taking

account of both the similarities and the differences in the situations and

aspirations of indigenous populations throughout the world;


3. Requests the Secretary-General to assist the working group on

indigenous populations and make all necessary arrangements to enable it to

carry out its functions.
