COPENHAGEN, 25 April 2019 (International Work Group for indigenous AffairsIGWIA)*Rising tensions between states and indigenous peoples are reaching a tipping point, and with an ever-shrinking civic space worldwide, the topics of criminalisation of Indigenous Rights Defenders’ activities and their organisations; land rights issues; and access to justice are more important than ever.

The Indigenous World 2019

The Indigenous World 2019 adds to the documented records, highlighting the increase in attacks and killings of indigenous peoples while defending their lands and other natural resources.
The 62 country reports and 13 reports on international processes in this edition underscore this global trend, and includes a special focus on Indigenous Rights Defenders at risk.
The book is the result of a collaborative effort between indigenous and non-indigenous activists and scholars who voluntarily share their valuable insights and analysis.
