On 13 September 2007, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. It marked the culmination of decades of struggle among indigenous peoples for a universal framework establishing minimum standards to ensure the survival, dignity and well-being of the indigenous peoples of the world. This publication looks back at ten-plus years of the Declaration’s existence—more than ten years both of implementation and progress and of unfulfilled expectations. Chapter 1 Implementation of the Declaration : progress, good practices and achievements -- Chapter 2 Indigenous peoples in official statistics -- Chapter 3 Identifying challenges and targeting priorities -- Chapter 4 The way forward — recommendations and suggestions.
