In this section you will find treaties and other international legal instruments that protect Indigenous Peoples in Isolation and Initial Contact.

Regulations to protect PIACI

As part of our work, we compiled the different regulations providing for the protection and defense of Indigenous Peoples in Voluntary Isolation and Initial Contact.

 

At the international level, we compiled the different comments, reports, recommendations and jurisprudence from the different United Nations (UN) organizations and from the Inter-American Human Rights System, which is part of the Organization of American States (OAS).

 

At the national level, the different resolutions, regulations, decrees and laws of five of the eight countries with a PIACI presence in South America (Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru) were compiled, since the remaining three (Paraguay, Suriname and Venezuela) lack specific regulations for PIACI.

 

The documents in this section are only available in Spanish, except for the Brazilian regulations, which are available in Portuguese.
