Rights to Lands, Participation and Consultation of Indigenous Peoples.: A summary of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights’ Judicial Interpretation.

Research output: Working paper


This summary proposes a critical legal analysis of the jurisprudence of the Inter-American
Court of Human Rights regarding indigenous peoples’ rights to lands, participation, and
consultation. It focuses on the role that cultural diversity as a legal standard has played
in the recognition of the indigenous peoples’ right to consultation and participation in
all matters that directly affect them, as a guarantee for the protection of their right to
communal property and natural resources traditionally used, and for safeguarding their
cultural identity.
