Standing Committee of the Dana Declaration on Mobile Peoples and Conservation

The Refugee Studies Centre’s main concern is that research and advocacy regarding the rights of marginal and displaced peoples (those forced to move or forced to settle) are kept at the fore of international discussions, and that new policies are developed to protect the rights of such peoples to a sustainable livelihood. The Dana Declaration Standing Committee and Working Group is especially concerned that the rights of indigenous peoples, and of mobile peoples in particular, are taken in consideration in relation with access to land and natural resources, to make sure that impoverisation as a result of dispossession and displacement, is halted and, eventually, reversed.
