The Expert Seminar on access to justice for indigenous peoples, including truth and reconciliation processes, will be held at Columbia University, New York, from 27 February to 1 March 2013. The main objective of the Expert Seminar will be to contribute to the Expert Mechanism's study on access to justice in the promotion and protection of the rights of indigenous peoples. This necessarily includes an examination of the role of truth and reconciliation processes, and how they complement the justice system, resulting in improvements to access to justice.
The Expert Seminar is also working to compile an edited volume of contributions to the Expert Seminar to be printed in English and Spanish. Release date to be announced.
