Indigenous & Tribal Peoples’ Rights In Practice: A guide to ILO Convention No. 169

In 1989, the International Labour Organization adopted the Indigenous and Tribal Peoples Convention (ILO Convention No. 169). Since then, the Convention has been ratified by 20 countries and has guided and inspired governments and indigenous peoples all over the world in their work to promote and protect indigenous peoples’ rights. Twenty years have passed since the adoption of the Convention. This Guide presents experiences, practices and lessons learned generated so far – thus providing a practical tool for the further understanding and implementation of indigenous peoples’ rights (ILO / Pro 169, 2009).
