The movement for tribal peoples


About ILO 169

ILO 169 is a convention of the International Labour Organisation. It is a vital instrument for the protection of tribal peoples.

ILO 169 recognises tribal peoples’ right to:

  • land ownership
  • equality and freedom
  • make decisions about projects that affect them

Governments that ratify the convention are legally bound to abide by it. This makes it much more powerful than the UN Declaration on Indigenous Peoples. Every country that ratifies ILO 169 strengthens its force overall, and gives tribal peoples a greater chance of survival.
