Highlights from the forthcoming publication “State of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, Volume III” on this topic of indigenous peoples and education will be discussed at a special event at the UN Headquarters event in observance of the International Day.- UN Division for Social Policy and Development Indigenous Peoples
