Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organisation

UNPO logoGeneral Introduction
The Unrepresented Nations and Peoples organisation (UNPO) is a democratic, international membership organisation. Its members are indigenous peoples, occupied nations, minorities and independent states or territories who have joined together to protect their human and cultural rights, preserve their environments, and to find non-violent solutions to conflicts which affect them. UNPO provides a legitimate and established international forum for member aspirations and assists its members in effective participation at an international level.

Although UNPO members have different goals and aspirations, they share one condition - they are not represented in major international fora, such as the United Nations. As a result, their ability to participate in the international community and to have their concerns addressed by the global bodies mandated to protect human rights and address conflict is limited. The UNPO is dedicated to the five principles enshrined in its Charter: Non-violence, Human Rights, Self-determination and democracy, Environmental Protection, and Tolerance.
