Resources

For IWGIA, documentation goes hand in hand with promoting, defending and protecting the rights of indigenous peoples.

We are monitoring and documenting the status of indigenous peoples' rights and produce solid publications and fact-based reports to strengthen and empower indigenous peoples to fight violations of their rights. Many of our publications are co-productions produced in close cooperation between IWGIA and our partners in English and/or Spanish.
