About this product
- DescriptionThe adoption of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigeus Peoples by the United Nations General Assembly on 13 September 2007 was acclaimed as a major success for the United Nations system given the extent to which it consolidates and develops the international corpus of indigeus rights. This is the first in-depth academic analysis of this far-reaching instrument. Indigeus representatives have argued that the rights contained in the Declaration, and the processes by which it was formulated, obligate affected States to accept the validity of its provisions and its interpretation of contested concepts (such as 'culture', 'land', 'ownership' and 'self-determination'). This edited collection contains essays written by the main protagonists in the development of the Declaration; indigeus representatives; and field-leading academics. It offers a comprehensive institutional, thematic and regional analysis of the Declaration. In particular, it explores the Declaration's rmative resonance for international law and considers the ways in which this international instrument could catalyse institutional action and influence the development of national laws and policies on indigeus issues.
