About this product
- DescriptionIndigeus self-determination is the recognised right of all peoples to freely determine their political status, and pursue their ecomic, social and cultural development. Unfinished Constitutional Business offers fresh insights into the ways Indigeus peoples can chart their own course and realise self-determination. The right to self-determination remains the most hotly contested issue in the UN Working Group's Draft Declaration: because the history of colonisation is emotionally charged, the issue has been clouded by a rhetoric that has sometimes obstructed analysis. This book provides a comprehensive international exploration of Indigeus self-determination. It argues that patterns are emerging that point to effective strategies that will allow Indigeus peoples to realise their goals. The UN Working Group's definition of Indigeus peoples has been influenced by these different experiences of colonisation. Diverse jurisdictions are examined as it surveys both common law and civil law systems: from the Saami Parliaments of Scandinavia, to the Maori seats in the New Zealand Parliament, of the Australian Indigeus peoples struggle for native title and self-governance, to the Canadian experience in territorial governance. A selection of international authors challenge readers to (re)consider the meanings of self-determination and their implic-ations for Indigeus peoples in different contexts.
