Annual reports by the Expert Mechanism for the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

The Expert Mechanism submits annual thematic reports to the Human Rights Council (HRC). Thematic reports document findings on particular topics and provide guidance and recommendations for UN member States, civil society organisations and other stakeholders.

The Expert Mechanism also produces a report each year on its annual session, and issues official reports and documents relating to UNDRIP.
