The rights of indigenous peoples continue to be violated throughout the world, according to a United Nations independent expert.

The UN Special Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous people, James Anaya, presented his final report to the UN General Assembly's Third Committee which deals with social, humanitarian and cultural issues.

In September 2007 the General Assembly adopted a declaration which outlines the rights of the estimated 370 million indigenous peoples around the world.
