Description The emergence of an international rights regime is a matter of both national and international importance that points to a critical yet oft-ignored governance issue – Indigenous rights. With the adoption of UNDRIP, states formally recognized the distinct status of indigenous peoples, as well as the international obligation to protect and promote their human rights. UNDRIP serves to reinforce the fundamental rights and protections of indigenous peoples that were already recognized by international law, but often denied by states.
