Northern Public Affairs is pleased to announce the upcoming release of its April edition on the right of Indigenous Peoples to Free, Prior, and Informed Consent (FPIC).
Flowing from the right of all peoples to self-determination and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, the right to Free, Prior, and Informed Consent is a right of all Indigenous Peoples to participate in decisions affecting rights, property, cultures, and environment.
Northern Public Affairs’ FPIC edition promises to be a resource for practitioners and policy makers, as well as a source of information for the general public. We are compiling a variety of expert opinions and practitioners’ stories and experiences on FPIC to demonstrate the benefits of working together to this standard across Canada and around the world. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more information about our authors.
In the meantime, we invite you to contribute to the release of our first digital issue by sharing one meaningful photo that describes what FPIC means to you. Selected photos will be included, with your consent, in the pages of our print and digital magazine.
Make #FPIC a reality.
