Property Rights of Indigenous Groups

The Social, Cultural, and Humanitarian Committee (SOCHUM) addresses a large variety of humanitarian affairs and human rights issues. This committee brings the rights of women, children, and refugees into fruition, however, this year's SOCHUM committee will be addressing Property Rights of Indigenous Groups in the Amazon (South America). Indigenous peoples have coped with historic injustices as a result of colonization, disposition of their lands, territories and resources, among others. The UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples promotes the inherent rights of indigenous peoples, especially their property rights, yet Indigenous rights in the Amazon have been continuously under threat due to large developments destroying their land and culture.
