Abstract: "The participating States of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) have committed to ensuring the human rights and fundamental freedoms of everyone within their territory and subject to their jurisdiction, without distinction of any kind. Recognizing that persons belonging to indigenous populations may experience specific difficulties in exercising their rights, they affirmed that OSCE commitments apply fully and without discrimination to such persons. Nevertheless, across the world, including the OSCE region, indigenous peoples face intolerance and discrimination in various forms and expressions. To open a discussion on this topic and foster the exchange of information, the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) will convene an online conference entitled “Addressing Intolerance and Discrimination against Indigenous Peoples: Mapping the Situation in the OSCE Region” on 9 November 2021."
