12 August 2014: Presentation How Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples are we succeeding at United Nations
Les Malezer has been working in New York to assist the President of the UN General Assembly to prepare for the World Conference on Indigenous Peoples. The conference will be held at the time of the opening of the new session of the General Assembly, and will be a high-level plenary meeting involving leaders, Ministers and high officials of governments.
Mr Malezer will give an address during a brief return to Australia to highlight the importance and value of this event. The presentation will reveal the success that Indigenous Peoples of the world have had in fighting for their rights through international strategies and speculate on the impact that the UN can have upon Australia’s laws, policies and practices regarding Indigenous Peoples over the coming years.
Congress would like to thank Gilbert + Tobin for their generosity in providing the venue for this important presentation.
