This chapter examines the impact of trade on indigenous populations. It begins with an overview of indigenous populations within the human rights and international trade frameworks, with particular emphasis on how they are historically treated under international law. It then considers human rights that are specific to indigenous peoples, along with the claim by human rights advocates that the TRIPS Agreement is further weakening the linkages between trade and human rights. It also discusses the role of TRIPS in the abuse of traditional knowledge in relation to intellectual property rights and concludes by proposing government policies that must be adopted to nurture trade while reversing its destructive effects on indigenous knowledge and biodiversity.

Keywords:   indigenous populations, human rights, international trade, international law, indigenous peoples, TRIPS Agreement, traditional knowledge, intellectual property rights, indigenous knowledge, biodiversity
