Indigenous peoples and ethnic minorities

This focus is concerned with the situation and plight of the world’ indigenous peoples. The emphasis is on common property resources (or commons) and their management, human rights, land rights, and the right to development. This focus includes also an emphasis on ethnic minorities, which actually is a much larger category.
