In order to enhance the public’s attention to the issue of social welfare of Indigenous Peoples, the Council of Indigenous Peoples (hereinafter referred to as the Council) held the Seminar on Social Welfare Policy and Practice of Indigenous Peoples at the NTUH International Convention Center on November 16. According to the agenda, there would be special seminars, posters and papers, as well as exhibitions related to industries of Indigenous Peoples. Nearly 250 participants from the different industries, governmental agencies and academic units would come together to discuss the future development direction of social welfare policies of Indigenous Peoples.
Deputy Director Iwan Nawi said that the seminar specially invited keynote speakers with forward-looking discussions on health and sanitation, social welfare, employment safety, etc. to make special reports. From the practical point of view, and through dialogue and exchange with government units, academic departments and non-governmental organizations, the three participants put forward suggestions and future directions to promote the right to health of the Indigenous Peoples, explore ways to shorten the gap between the average life expectancy of the Indigenous Peoples and that of all the people, ensure the right to work of the Indigenous Peoples, and increase the number of the employment opportunities of Indigenous Peoples, develop vocational training in line with the trends of the times, realize the welfare rights of the Indigenous Peoples, understand ethnic groups and gender, and understand the professional and cultural capabilities of the social workers of Indigenous Peoples.
The theme of this seminar was “See the World, Safeguard the Tradition, Shake the Future - eliminating the inequality of social welfare, health care and employment among the Indigenous Peoples”. A keynote speech on the development of culturally sensitive social welfare policies was conducted. The symposium included the health inequality, social security policy, employment service and intensive action of Indigenous Peoples. There were also 15 poster papers on the spot. Through the overview of the existing social welfare policies of the Indigenous Peoples, we could discuss how to strengthen the social security system of the Indigenous Peoples with creative thinking.
The Council had established a social welfare system based on Indigenous Peoples. It used such welfare service systems as the Indigenous Peoples Family Service Center, Culture & Health Station and employment service to cultivate indigenous talents to participate in the service of indigenous people and create a high-quality social safety net for Indigenous Peoples. It was hoped that, from a practical point of view, through dialogue and exchange among government units, academic departments and non-governmental organizations, the seminar would arouse the attention of all circles to the social welfare of the Indigenous Peoples and serve as a reference for promoting the improvement of the social welfare policies of the Indigenous Peoples.
