Dear Colleagues,

Completing the UN International Decade of Indigenous People in December
2004, the Ministry of Culture and Public Relations of the Republic of
Karelia, the Republican Ethnic Cultural Centre, Youth Information and Law

the International Conference «The Rights of the Indigenous Peoples: Russian
and the World Contexts» in Petrozavodsk, Republic of Karelia, on the 9-10th

The UN International Decade of Indigenous People aimed at strengthening
international co-operation in solving the problems the indigenous peoples
faced in the human rights, education, culture, environment and health. To
achieve the stated goals within the International Decade, the UNO system
made many important decisions, including the establishment of a position of
the Special Rapporteur on the Situation of the Human Rights and Fundamental
Freedoms of Indigenous Peoples, establishment of the Permanent Forum on
Indigenous Issues. Public awareness of the indigenous peoples' problems and
the indigenous rights protection activities at the international and
national levels have considerably increased.

The International Conference «The Rights of the Indigenous Peoples: Russian
and the World Contexts» will deal with the discussion of the results of the
UN International Decade at the international and national levels,
preparation of the recommendations for the Programme of the next
International Decade of Indigenous People.
