In this chapter, Alvarado provides an overview of the significant achievements and ongoing challenges that indigenous peoples have had in defending their rights in the international arena. In looking at key international cases before the Inter-American Human Rights System and the work of the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Alvarado argues that indigenous peoples have succeeded in making indigenous rights issues prominent parts of international and national debates and legal reforms, and in ushering a more favorable international diplomatic discourse on indigenous rights. Challenges persist however, due to limits of enforceability of international human rights standards and the ongoing social, political and economic inequalities that indigenous peoples face in fully realizing their rights.
