The Indigenous World 2020

The compilation you have in your hands is the unique result of a collaborative effort between Indigenous and non-Indigenous activists and scholars who voluntarily document and report on the situation of Indigenous Peoples’ rights. We thank them and celebrate the bonds and sense of community that result from the close cooperation needed to make this one-of-a kind documentation tool available. For 34 consecutive years IWGIA has published The Indigenous World in collaboration with this community of authors. This yearly overview serves to document and report on the developments Indigenous Peoples have experienced throughout 2019. The Indigenous World 2020 adds not only documentation, but also includes a special focus on climate change. The Indigenous World 2020 includes several examples of dispossession and evictions of Indigenous Peoples from their land.
