Transcript of WHAT IS UNDRIP?

Effective measures
Some of the implications concerning Māoridom
Shows the Crown and Governments willingness to recognize Māori and strengthens relationship
Solidifies Māori rights and freedoms
Backs up Treaty of Waitangi
However, doesn't cover other cultures in NZ because they're not indigenous
Even though many of the issues that Māori face are faced by them also
Also doesn't cover marginalized groups
Their rights are covered in other places
Declaration outlining the rights of indigenous people
Most important development for protection of rights and freedoms
24 preamble paragraphs
46 articles
What's the purpose?
Disadvantaged non-Māori indigenous people
Rights of indigenous people
Four provisions
Sovereignty, conflict, protection and legal recognition
4 Countries did not sign
Human Rights
Language and Culture
"A landmark declaration that brought to an end nearly 2 decades of continuous negotiations over the rights of native people to protect their lands and resources and to maintain their unique cultures and traditions."
Prevention of discrimination and protection of minorities
"Affirming that indigenous peoples are equal to all other peoples, while recognising the rights of all peoples to be different, and to be respected as such."
What are our marginalized communities?
Disproportionate lack of access to materials
Lack of engagement in influencing societal decisions
Identity and cultural loss for communities
Loss of tradition, identity, families, friends, relationship to land, values and beliefs.
"In keeping with our strong commitment to human rights, and indigenous rights in particular, New Zealand now adds its support to the declaration both as an affirmation of fundamental rights and in its expression of new and widely supported aspiration."
- Māori Affairs Minister,
Dr. Pita Sharples
Connections between Declaration and Treaty of Waitangi
Strengthening relationship between the Crown and Māori
If Māori excels, so will the rest of Aotearoa
"The declaration acknowledges the distinctive and important status of indigenous peoples, their common historical experiences and the universal spirit that underpins its text. The declaration is an affirmation of accepted international human rights and also expresses new, and non-binding, aspirations...New Zealand acknowledges and understands the historic injustices suffered by Māori in relation to their land and resources and is committed to addressing these through the established Treaty settlement process."
- Māori Affairs Minister, Dr. Pita Sharples
purpose of signing
He matua pou whare, e rokohia ana; he matua tangata, e kore e rokohia
who are they?
Francesco Capotorti's definition
Numerical inferiority, non dominant position of the group, different in ethnic, religion or linguistic characteristics from rest of population, desire to preserve culture, traditions, religion or language. (Jabareen, 2012)
Minority groups
Pacific Islanders
LBGT community
impact of undrip
They're not covered
Indigenous in own countries
Pacific Islands didn't sign
Face similar issues as Maori
Are we failing to recognize the rights of our marginalized communities? (Just because they're not covered in UNDRIP doesn't mean they don't have rights)
then where?
