Yearbook 1988. IWGIA: 20 Years.
Gray, Andrew
The theme of this yearbook is the work of the International Work Group for Indigenous Affairs (IWGIA) during the 20 years of its existence and the enormous growth of the indigenous movement in that time. Section 1 traces IWGIA's history and includes the annual report for 1988. Section 2 is a global view of the main events in the indigenous world during 1988, presenting a comprehensive panorama with facts, texts, maps, and population figures. In 1988 atrocities against indigenous peoples continued on a huge scale and included mass killings, land alienation, and cultural destruction. Section 3 looks at developments in the International Labour Organization's (ILO) Revision of Convention 107 and the formation of the Declaration of Indigenous Rights at the United Nations. This section includes interviews and statements from five indigenous participants at ILO and UN meetings. Papers in section 4, the "focus" section include "Funding Deforestation: Conservation Woes at the World Bank" by Bruce Rich; "San, Human Rights, and Development in Southern Africa" by Robert Hitchcock and Sam Totten; "Indigenous People in Paraguay: A Brief Report" by Miguel Chase-Sardi; and "Will the Yanomami (of Brazil) Survive the Gold Rush?" by Teresa Aparicio. This yearbook ends with an index, by country, of all articles published by IWGIA in the last 20 years. (SV)
