Examining the Rights of Peoples in South Asia

On August 9, 2021 the international community will commemorate International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples. Yet, organizations such as the ILO, have noted inconsistent protections for Indigenous Peoples in places throughout Asia. South Asian Tribal People continue to face challenges relating to migration, forced displacement, and human rights violations. Further, the loss of identity and culture is becoming commonplace. COVID 19 has exacerbated many issues for Indigenous People in South Asia. In order to continue to raise awareness around tribal rights, The Common Good Foundation presents a series of lectures titled, “Examining the Rights of Peoples in South Asia.”  The situations examined include Nepal, Kashmir, India, and Pakistan.
