COVID-19 and Indigenous Peoples
Fact-sheets on UN recommendations and other sources
These fact-sheets aim to support the work of indigenous activists and human rights defenders working on issues related to Indigenous Peoples. Franciscans International also hopes that they will serve as a tool to become familiar with the vocabulary, design and formulations coming from the different United Nations human rights mechanisms and that they will facilitate advocacy work at the national, regional, and international levels.
Each fact-sheet is dedicated to a different theme and contains a general description of the problem, some general and specific recommendations, and a section dedicated to other authoritative sources related to each issue.
While the recommendations are related to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of them can be adapted to address human rights situations more generally.
