I would highlight three factors: Demographics The ﬁrst factor is demographics. In the past, many governments had the hope or expectation that non-dominant ethnic groups would simply disappear, through dying out or assimilation or inter-marriage. It is now clear that this is not going to happen. Indigenous peoples are the fastest-growing segment of the population in the countries where they are found, with very high birth-rates.

In principle, and to some extent in practice, many face the threat of deportation if they are detected by the authorities, or if they are convicted of a crime.
