The Right to Remedy for Indigenous Peoples in Theory and in Practice

This report explains the right to remedy as it is understood in international law with a specific focus on the rights of indigenous peoples, and will serve as a guide to indigenous peoples, legal practitioners, and civil organizations alike on where the right to remedy is found and what types of remedies they may request. Reparations can repair damage caused by human rights violations and prevent future harm from occurring, by requiring changes in laws, policies or systems that dissuade the perpetrators or States responsible from committing future violations.
