This yearbook gives a comprehensive update on the current situation of indigenous peoples and their human rights situation across the world, and offers an overview of the most significant developments in international and regional processes relating to indigenous peoples during 2016.

The Indigenous World contains 71 articles and country reports all written by indigenous and non-indigenous activists as well as scholars and experts on indigenous peoples' rights. The book is an essential source of information and an indispensable tool for those interested in indigenous issues and wish to be informed about the most recent issues and developments which impact indigenous peoples worldwide. 

As the world approaches the 10th anniversary of the UNDRIP, the main international legal framework for the protection and promotion of indigenous peoples' rights, particular attention is paid to the status of its implementation and this year's edition includes three regional chapters on the UNDRIP's significance, implementation, and impact in Asia, Africa and Latin America over the past ten years.
