Headquarters agreements govern the relationship between an international organization such as the UN and the host state where the headquarters of the international organization are located. Included in a typical agreement are provisions related to the status, privileges and immunities, and activities of an international organization.
The NNIA Treaty/Convention, is an Intergovernmental Alliance, thus a IGO International Organization has a Headquarters agreement with the State of SCNRFP.
In the case of the UN, there are a number of headquarters agreements as a number of UN funds, programmes, specialized agencies, secretariats and tribunals have offices based in locations around the world. These agreements can be found in the UN Treaty Series.
The UN-US Headquarters Agreement (11 UNTS 11) is the biggest and best known headquarters agreement as the UN complex in New York is considered the principal headquarters of the United Nations.

EUCLID has signed two headquarters agreements that are legally in force and in operation. The initial agreement with the Central African Republic (2011) and a new agreement was signed with the Republic of The Gambia in 2013 due to instability and operational challenges in Bangui. In addition, the EUCLID treaty did provide for a temporary headquarters office in Brussels, Belgium (without specific status), and EUCLID maintains a Liaison Office in Washington DC which likewise is an executive office with no special legal status.

(SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic) — Today, after nearly 30 years, the Organization of American States (OAS) adopted the American Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
“This is a profound moment in the history of the indigenous rights movement,” said Armstrong Wiggins, director of the Indian Law Resource Center’s Washington, D.C. office.
For generations, indigenous peoples’ human rights, including their right of self-determination and their rights to their lands, territories, environment, natural resources, sustainable development, and cultural survival have been challenged globally. The American Declaration offers specific protection for indigenous peoples in North America, Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean.
“No declaration is perfect, but this is an important step in the right direction to protect indigenous peoples,” said Wiggins. “The American Declaration, as a human rights instrument, is a living instrument that will be interpreted in accordance with indigenous peoples’ present-day conditions, in order to better protect their human rights.”
From left to right: Paulo Celso de Oliveira, Brazil; Hector Huertas Gonzalez , Panama; Clem Chartier-Canada; and Armstrong Wiggins, director of ILRC Washington, D.C. office.The American Declaration will provide thorough protections for indigenous women and children, for indigenous peoples living in voluntary isolation, and for those affected by a state’s internal armed conflict.
The OAS is a regional intergovernmental organization of 35 member countries of the Americas, including the United States. The OAS General Assembly – the highest body of the OAS – took its first steps toward a declaration in 1989, but it wasn’t until 1999, when the Working Group on the draft American Declaration was established, that indigenous peoples were allowed to participate in the meetings and negotiations on the content of the Declaration.
“We are glad a number of indigenous participants were able to secure funds and attend the negotiations throughout the lengthy process. They succeeded in overcoming great problems in a somewhat flawed system to win approval of a good text of the Declaration,” said Wiggins.
The American Declaration will become one of the most important instruments of the Inter-American Human Rights System. Both the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights and the Inter-American Court of Human Rights will interpret the Declaration to provide content to other instruments, such as the American Convention on Human Rights – the main regional human rights treaty, and the American Declaration on Rights and Duties of Man. This is particularly important when indigenous peoples are seeking recognition of treaty and land rights, protections for those in voluntary isolation or under internal armed conflicts, and protections for indigenous women and children.
Looking forward, Wiggins hopes the Declaration will guide the OAS to undertake action-oriented programs to help indigenous peoples realize the rights recognized in the Declaration. “This is the beginning of another journey, where indigenous peoples from the Americas expect the OAS and its member states to take actions, in conjunction with our traditional governments and authorities, to ensure full enjoyment of our collective rights.”
Indian Law Resource Center staff have participated in all of the negotiations to provide legal advice and support to the indigenous representatives.
A 17-Year Wait Pays off for Indigenous Peoples
Adopts American Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
50 Million People in the Americas Self-Define as Indigenous.
June 15, 2016
When Héctor Huertas attended the first meeting to draft an American declaration on indigenous peoples in 1999, he thought the end was not far off. Neither he, nor anyone else in that room in Washington, D.C., imagined that the end was 17 years away.
That train finally reached its destination today at the General Assembly of the Organization of American States in Santo Domingo, where the member states adopted the American Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples by acclamation.
The declaration is the first instrument in the history of the OAS to promote and protect the rights of the indigenous peoples of the Americas.
Huertas, a Panamanian lawyer and indigenous leader who belongs to the Guna people, took part not only in the inaugural meeting, but in the entire process that lasted the best part of two decades. Hence his visible satisfaction as he stood up today to address the General Assembly following the Declaration’s adoption. “Today the OAS is honoring an historical debt to indigenous peoples by acknowledging the rights of the more than 50 million indigenous men, women, and children who live in the Americas,” he said.
“The OAS has honored an historical debt to indigenous peoples from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego.”
Huertas stressed that the Declaration introduces a new framework for relations between states and indigenous peoples, including greater respect for their human rights and their consideration on topics such as sustainable development.
The Declaration also makes profound changes within states that paves the way for genuine democracy and participation for indigenous peoples in each state. It recognizes the rights to self-determination, land, resources, and, above all, free and informed prior consent,” he said.
“The OAS is ushering a new phase in relations with an instrument that could give indigenous peoples a say in all aspects of development in the Hemisphere. We are even going to ask the OAS to let us participate as indigenous peoples and not as civil society,” Huertas added.
“Historic Milestone for the Americas”
“The Declaration recognizes our right to self-determination.”
Adelfo Regino Montes, an indigenous Mexican lawyer from the Mixe people of Oaxaca, was also in Santo Domingo, where this “historic milestone for the Americas,” as he put it, was reached.
Regino Montes said that the Declaration represents a stride forward in terms of both individual and collective rights as it recognizes fundamental rights, including “self-determination and autonomy and land rights, which is very important because in countries like Mexico and Brazil the forests have been preserved thanks to the indigenous peoples.”
The representative of the Mixe people considered it valuable that the Declaration includes the issue of “free, prior consent,” which compels states to inform indigenous peoples about infrastructure and development projects before they start. “It is important that the Declaration recognizes that the indigenous people who may be affected must be consulted before any administrative or legislative steps are taken. Unfortunately, in the past our peoples have had to suffer having projects imposed on them,” he added.
The Declaration recognizes:
The collective organization and multicultural and multilingual character of indigenous peoples.
The self-identification of people who consider themselves indigenous.
Special protection for peoples in voluntary isolation or initial contact, such as certain peoples of the Amazon, which is an aspect that distinguishes it from other similar initiatives.
That progress in promoting and effectively protecting the rights of the indigenous peoples of the Americas is a priority for the OAS.
Foreign Minister of Bolivia (first from the left): “We celebrate the fact that in the Dominican Republic the OAS Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples was adopted.”
The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Bolivia, David Choquehuanca, emphasized that the Declaration recognizes “all rights: not only human rights—which are individual—but also collective rights, such as economic, social, and cultural rights.” “We therefore applaud the adoption here in the Dominican Republic of this Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples of the Organization of American States,” Foreign Minister Choquehuanca added.
Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Peru celebrated the adoption of the Declaration in the plenary of the Assembly. Juan Gabriel Morales, Mexico’s Deputy Director General for Hemispheric and Security Affairs, described it as the “first hemispheric document that seeks to promote and protect the rights of the indigenous peoples of the Americas and, along with the United Nations Declaration, it is a basic instrument for the survival, dignity, and wellbeing of the indigenous peoples of our hemisphere.” Mexico’s representative continued: “The Declaration emphasizes the recognition of and respect for the rights of indigenous peoples to collective action and to their own legal, social, political, and economic systems or institutions.”
The Deputy Foreign Minister of Nicaragua, Denis Moncada, said that the adoption of the Declaration was the “historical vindication of the indigenous peoples of the Americas, who have suffered the consequences of colonialism and neocolonialism and, with that, the extermination of their populations, segregation, exclusion, and the loss of their natural habitat. ... We cannot deny the important contribution made by the indigenous people of the Americas to the multicultural and multilingual richness of our societies.”
Since the 1970s, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights has maintained that for historical reasons and moral and humanitarian principles, states have a sacred commitment to provide indigenous peoples with special protection. In 1990, the Commission created the Office of the Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples to attend to those peoples that are particularly exposed to human rights violations on account of their vulnerable situations and to strengthen the Commission's work in that area.
Key points of the Declaration:
Self-identification as indigenous peoples will be a fundamental criterion for determining to whom the Declaration applies.
