Workshops and exchanges on Indigenous Peoples Rights in the frame of ILO Convention No.169 (Talleres y Diálogos Participativos sobre Derechos de Pueblos Indígenas bajo el Convenio 169 de la OIT)
This project, funded under the EuropeAid programme, aimed to promote and to disseminate the rights recognized by ILO Convention No.169 (Convention concerning Indigenous and Tribal Peoples in Independent Countries) to indigenous peoples and to civil servants dealing with indigenous issues, as well as to reinforce the role of the civil society in the protection of indigenous rights in Chile. It did so by organizing workshops and trainings addressed to indigenous peoples’ leaders, academics, civil servants and civil society organizations dealing directly with or interested in indigenous issues. Moreover, a manual on best practices on the promotion of indigenous peoples’ rights in Chile, and a guide on the ILO Convention No.169 and its application in Chile were prepared and published. The project was lead by Universidad Diego Portales – Centro de Derechos Humanos, Santiago (Chile), in cooperation with the Institue for minority Rights (EURAC), Bolzano/Bozen, and the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile-sede regional de Villarrica (Chile).
