About the product

For indigenous peoples the world over, the protection of cultural and intellectual property has taken on growing importance and urgency. This publication provides a basis for appropriate standard-setting by international bodies as well as a number of specific institutional measures to provide indigenous peoples with some immediate relief from the widespread and growing threats to the integrity of their cultural, spiritual, artistic, religious and scientific traditions.
