Human Rights Standards for Conservation, Part III: Which Redress Mechanisms are Available to Peoples and Communities Affected by Conservation Initiatives?

Jael E. Makagon

Book/Report, 32 pages

Despite the wealth of international law that confers rights on Indigenous Peoples and local communities and responsibilities on a wide range of conservation actors, it is often difficult for communities to find effective mechanisms to obtain redress when injustices occur. This paper is intended to help clarify which official redress mechanisms exist and how they can be used. It forms the final part of a series of three papers that aims to serve as a foundation for developing an accessible Guide to Human Rights Standards for Conservation.

Project information

Despite international law that confers rights on indigenous peoples and local communities, and rights on a wide range of conservation actors, it is often difficult for communities to find effective mechanisms to obtain redress when injustices occur. This discussion paper clarifies which redress mechanisms exist, their strengths and weaknesses, and asks: should a body focused specially on the conduct of conservation initiatives be formed?
