UNDRIP Implementation: Braiding International, Domestic and Indigenous Law

Thursday, July 13, 2017 1:15 PM - 2:45 PM
Palais des Nations, Room XXVII, Geneva, Switzerland
Public Event: Workshop
Jul 13

Join leading Canadian Indigenous legal academics and practitioners for a discussion on implementing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) in Canada. The “braiding” of international, domestic and Indigenous laws is the guiding metaphor for this discussion, through which we can begin to reimagine what a nation-to-nation relationship could mean.

Lunch will be provided during this side event, and a special report on human rights, Indigenous rights, Indigenous languages and the implementation of UNDRIP in Canada will be distributed.
