Dr Hannah McGlade on the UN Indigenous Rights Declaration and the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues
August 9 commemorates the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples. The day aims to raise awareness and protect the rights of the world’s Indigenous population.
It’s also a day to recognise the work of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People.
UN Youth spoke with Noongar Woman, Human Rights Lawyer, Academic and member of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, Dr Hannah McGlade about the role of the UN Declaration and the Permanent Forum.
