Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice
Also available to download:
A website on the Declaration has been developed by the Australian Human Rights Commission
'It is using the Declaration that breathes life into it.'
As an international instrument, the Declaration provides a blueprint for Indigenous peoples and governments around the world, based on the principles of self-determination and participation, to respect the rights and roles of Indigenous peoples within society. It is the instrument that contains the minimum standards for the survival, dignity and well-being of Indigenous peoples all over the world
