Aiming to facilitate the relations and information-flow between indigenous peoples and the European institutions, the Indigenous Peoples’ Centre for documentation, research and information (Docip) opened a new office located in Brussels.

The Docip Office aims to facilitate the participation of indigenous delegates in the current EU legislative processes and civil society consultations by providing them with information on the European institutions and facilitating the contact between indigenous groups and the EU institutions and representatives. More information can be found on their website.

In light of the launch of the new office, ETUCE underlines the role of education systems, teachers and other education staff to acknowledge and foster the cultural identity of indigenous groups.
