Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Questionnaire

In Resolution 27/13 of 24 September 2014 the Human Rights Council requested the Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous peoples to: "…continue to undertake, with the assistance of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, the questionnaire survey to seek the views of States and indigenous peoples on best practices regarding possible appropriate measures and implementation strategies in order to attain the goals of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, with a view to completing a final summary of responses for presentation to the Human Rights Council at its thirtieth session."

This questionnaire is deliberately designed to emulate, as much as possible, the questionnaire to States so as to facilitate easy comparison in responses and generate ideas for partnerships between States and indigenous peoples for implementation of the Declaration.

Responses from Indigenous Peoples will be analysed and compiled in a report by the Expert Mechanism, which will be finalized during the 8th session of the Expert Mechanism in July 2015 for presentation to the Human Rights Council at its 30th session in September 2015. Unless otherwise requested, responses of indigenous peoples to the questionnaire will be made available on the website of the Expert Mechanism. Responses will also inform the ongoing review of the Expert Mechanism’s mandate, in accordance with the Outcome Document of the World Conference on Indigenous Peoples (A/RES/69/2).

Responses are requested by 2 March 2015.
