Description This paper explores the rights of Indigenous people in International law, through the frameworks of Free, Prior, Informed Consent (FPIC), and the World Commission on Dams (WCD). Reasons why FPIC is not always upheld in practice are explored through a series of case studies, and policy suggestions from the WCD are that prioritize the recognition of rights and assessment of risks are proposed to combat these problems.
