DoCip is a center for documentation and information created in 1978 at the initiative of indigenous delegations attending the first International Conference on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UN, Geneva, 1977).
As a documentation center, Docip: constitutes the memory of the recognition of the rights of indigenous peoples (IP) at the international level; promotes the creation of documentation centers by organizing training courses and capacity-building programs; compiles a quadrilingual Indigenous thesaurus on human rights in partnership with the Documentary Network. Its catalog of links provides access to 450 sites of indigenous, international or support organisations. It acts as a facilitator for the Documentation Network specialized in indigenous issues.
Among available resources one can find: a database conference on IP, documentary files, collections of periodicals and monographies, a training database on international processes for IP and a quarterly newsletter that summarizes the international debate on IP .
