From 23 January to 2 February 2024, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on freedom of opinion and expression, Ms Irene Khan, will undertake an official country visit to the Philippines to examine, in the spirit of cooperation and dialogue, the situation of the rights to freedom of opinion and expression in the country. In preparation for her visit, we worked on a situation report about four key points : the national legislative framework, the freedom of the media, the internet freedom and the freedom of expression of specific groups. We have therefore outlined the essential points to know as a general overview about these subjects before going visiting the country to examine their applications of those rights.

Study on the impact of militarization on the rights of indigenous peoples

January 2023

This report deals with the impact of militarization on Mexico's indigenous peoples. It highlights violations of their fundamental rights, such as torture, disappearances and violence. Militarization leads to isolation, poverty and limited access to basic needs. Indigenous women and children are particularly vulnerable. Access to justice is difficult, but potential mechanisms include monitoring violations, integrating indigenous negotiation methods and strengthening indigenous governance. However, despite legal frameworks, state interests often prioritize economic exploitation over indigenous rights.
