Organización Internacional del Trabajo OIT

En 2014, fueron celebrados los 25 años de la adopción del Convenio 169 sobre Pueblos Indígenas y Tribales de la OIT. con la organización del seminario: Enabling rights-based development for indigenous and tribal peoples: Learning from 25 years’ experience of ILO Convention.  De este seminario descatamos la última conclusión, como pista a seguir en el futuro:

  1. Facilitating access of indigenous peoples to the ILO supervisory mechanisms

Several participants called for greater access of indigenous peoples to the ILO supervisory mechanisms. In this regard, good practices for facilitating such access were highlighted, including examples of cooperation between governments and indigenous peoples. Among others, the cooperation between the Government of Norway and the Sami Parliament as well as partnerships between indigenous peoples and workers’ organizations were highlighted as having enabled indigenous peoples to make submissions to the ILO’s supervisory mechanisms. Some participants suggested that these practices could be replicated in other countries, as appropriate, and could serve as a source of inspiration for achieving greater access of indigenous peoples to the ILO supervisory bodies (el subrayado es nuestro)
