Indigenous Fellowship Programme with OHCHR
The UN Human Rights Office of the High Commissioner call for applications for the senior indigenous fellowship is now open. The Indigenous Fellowship Programme (IFP) is a comprehensive programme which aims to contribute to build capacity and expertise of indigenous representatives in the UN system and mechanisms dealing with human rights in general and indigenous issues in particular. The IFP is accessible in four languages, it is held annually for 4-5 weeks in Geneva usually in June/July to coincide with the annual meeting of the Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
Please see the OHCHR IPF webpage for further information on how the programme works, who can apply, and how to apply.
