The Right of Indigenous Peoples to Prior Consultation: The Situation in Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru

This study illustrates the barriers to exercising the right to prior consultation and consent in each of these four countries, and is intended to encourage broad debate.

At Oxfam's request, the Due Process Law Foundation (DPLF) studied the current situation of the right to prior consultation under international human rights law in four Andean countries: Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. The study illustrates the barriers to exercising the right to prior consultation and consent in each of these four countries, and is intended to encourage broad debate. The report stresses the urgent need to develop mechanisms to ensure that indigenous peoples can act as architects of their own advancement as the true ancestral owners of the lands they inhabit.
