The International Labour Organization: A Handbook for Minorities and Indigenous Peoples

7 May 2002

An insider’s view of how the International Labour Organisation works. It explains how the ILO can be used by non-governmental organisations and others to promote and protect minority and indigenous people’s rights. It offers practical advice and case studies as well as step-by-step guidance on working with the ILO, how to influence its agenda, and how to work with bodies such as trade unions to further minority and indigenous people’s concerns.

Please note that the terminology in the fields of minority rights and indigenous peoples’ rights has changed over time. MRG strives to reflect these changes as well as respect the right to self-identification on the part of minorities and indigenous peoples. At the same time, after over 50 years’ work, we know that our archive is of considerable interest to activists and researchers. Therefore, we make available as much of our back catalogue as possible, while being aware that the language used may not reflect current thinking on these issues.
