The United Nations (UN) Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (EMRIP) was established by the UN Human Rights Council in 2007. The mandate of the EMRIP is to provide “the Human Rights Council with thematic advice, in the form of studies and research, on the rights of Indigenous peoples as directed by the Council. The Expert Mechanism may also suggest proposals to the Council for its consideration and approval.” The EMRIP consists of five independent experts on the rights of Indigenous People.
