Upcoming publication: Toolkit on indigenous women’s rights in the Inter-American system

Indigenous women from Argentina, Costa Rica, Chile, Canada, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama and Paraguay met from 27th to 29th June 2012 in Boruca, Costa Rica to further develop a toolkit on indigenous women’s rights in the Inter-American system of human rights.

This resource is being developed in order to support the participation of indigenous women in human rights mechanisms and to highlight existing channels and possible opportunities to influence the creation and the implementation of legal and human rights standards that are specifically relevant to them. This document will be published in Spanish and English towards the end of 2012. Collaborators working on this project are amongst others taking inspiration from Indigenous women’s rights and the African human rights system: a toolkit on mechanisms, published in 2011.
