Chapter 5: Evaluation of Indigenous peoples influence during the drafting process of UNDRIP
Restricted access

This paper examines how Indigenous peoples' interactions in the international system influenced other actors and shaped the development of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) through their active participation in international negotiations and convergences. After an extensive analysis of Indigenous peoples' participation during the drafting process of the UNDRIP between 1985 and 2007, this paper concludes that, although Indigenous peoples influenced the language of the UNDRIP to a large extent, their influence was not absolute.
