Updated: Jun 3

The Facts and Norms Institute (FNI) and the American Society of International Law (ASIL) celebrates the successful conclusion of their collaboration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Interest Group (RIPIG) Newsletter. This partnership, which began in June 2022, has culminated in the publication of a

comprehensive and insightful edition covering key developments in indigenous rights over the past year.

Henrique Napoleão Alves, Director of FNI, led the editorial efforts with co-editor Catherine van Kampen. The final issue, a combined edition for June 2022 to June 2023, includes detailed analyses, updates from UN and treaty bodies, and significant regional and international reports on indigenous rights.

"We are immensely proud of what we have achieved through this collaboration. The newsletter has served as an essential platform for raising awareness and advocating for the rights of indigenous peoples globally," said Alves. "We are grateful to all the contributors and the editorial team for their hard work and dedication."

The combined issue features contributions from assistant editors Ana Elisa Barbosa Mourão, Gabriela Cavalieri Maia, Laura Esteves Teixeira, Luísa Lobato Oliveira, Ella Dodson, Justin Loveland, Dr. Sophia Murashkovsky Romma, and Dr. Elizabeth Zechenter. Their diverse perspectives and expertise have significantly enriched the publication.

Additionally, the leadership and guidance of the RIPIG Co-Chairs, Shea Esterling and Jonathan Liljeblad, were instrumental in the success of this collaboration.
