Un Article en anglais par Rowena Dickins Morrison, postdoctorante SOGIP, intitulé « Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples 2013 (6th session), Geneva » a été publié sur le site web SOGIP. Cet article propose un commentaire sur la sixième session du Mécanisme d’expert sur les droits de peuples autochtones qui s’est tenue à Genève en juillet 2013.
The Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (EMRIP) held its sixth annual session from 8 to 12 July 2013 at the United Nations (UN) Office in Geneva (1). EMRIP was created by the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) in December 2007, following the adoption in September of that year of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) by the UN General Assembly. HRC Resolution 6/36 thus establishes EMRIP as a subsidiary expert mechanism with a mandate to provide the HRC with thematic expertise on the rights of Indigenous Peoples through studies and research-based advice, on the request of the Council, and through suggesting proposals to the HRC, within the scope of EMRIP’s work as set out by the Council. EMRIP is constituted by five independent experts holding three-year terms, with the possibility of renewal for an additional term. Significantly, four of the five current EMRIP experts are indigenous, although the terms of two of those four indigenous experts will expire in 2014 and their replacements are as yet unknown (2).
