This book is a full-length study of the rights of indigenous peoples in international law, focusing in particular on instruments of human rights. The primary reference point is contemporary law, though the book also examines the history of indigenous peoples through the lens of historical legal discourses. The work critically assesses the politics of definition and analyses contested definitions and descriptions of indigenous groups. Most of the chapters are devoted to detailed examination of existing and emerging human rights texts at global and regional levels. Among the instruments considered in the book are the International Covenants on Human Rights, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, the African Charter on Human and People's Rights, and the ILO Conventions on Indigenous and Tribal Peoples.

Indigenous Peoples and Human Rights explores how general human rights standards have enabled, empowered and constrained indigenous peoples in claiming and defending their essential economic, social, cultural, civil and political interests. The book examines the jurisprudence of United Nations treaty committees and regional human rights bodies (in Africa, the Americas and Europe) that have interpreted and applied human rights standards to the special circumstances and experiences of indigenous peoples. It focuses particularly on how human rights laws since the 1960s have been drawn upon by indigenous activists and victims to protect their interests in ancestral lands, natural resources, culture and language. It further explores the right to indigenous self-determination; civil and political rights; economic, social and cultural rights (including labour rights); family and children's rights; violence and discrimination against indigenous peoples; and access to justice and remedies for violations. The book also discusses international and regional efforts to define who is 'indigenous' and who is a 'minority', and the legal relationship between indigenous individuals and their communities. The jurisprudence considered in this book significantly shaped the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples 2007, which particularises and adapts general human rights standards for indigenous peoples. The book concludes by exploring future normative and implementation challenges in the light of the standard setting and consolidation, and political momentum, surrounding the UN Declaration and associated UN human rights mechanisms.

Indigenous Peoples' Rights in Australia, Canada and New Zealand aims to provide a contemporary and contextual survey and analysis of the legal and political interaction between the British settler, states of Australia, Canada and New Zealand, and the indigenous First Nation peoples they dispossessed. The text consists of a collection of commissioned essays, each focusing on a particular aspect of the relationship between the settler state and indigenous peoples. The contributors pose fundamental questions about the role of imposed legal and political institutions, both in continuing a process of colonial domination and in contributing to the progressive emancipation of indigenous peoples. The text includes sections on: indigenous peoples' perspectives on sovereignty, self-determination, and co-existence; a historical overview of settlement; comparative political jurisprudence and contemporary ethno-politics; the contemporary social impact of colonization; the administrationof indigenous affairs; and constitutionalizing indigenous rights.

Human Rights of Indigenous Peoples approaches this complex subject from two directions: first, the existing framework of international law, both actual and potential, as embodied in the relevant provisions of international conventions and the case law of international tribunals; and second, specific issues that arise between indigenous peoples in the United States, Canada, Latin America, Scandinavia, India, and Australia and the states which exercise jurisdiction in their homelands. This book, by a leading authority on children s rights, is a major contribution to an area of international law that attracts more attention each year, and that many human rights advocates see as a critical testing ground for the genuineness of states humanitarian rhetoric. Published under the Transnational Publishers imprint.

In this thoroughly revised and updated edition of the first book-length treatment of the subject, S. James Anaya incorporates references to all the latest treaties and recent developments in the international law of indigenous peoples. Anaya demonstrates that, while historical trends in international law largely facilitated colonization of indigenous peoples and their lands, modern international law's human rights program has been modestly responsive to indigenous peoples' aspirations to survive as distinct communities in control of their own destinies. This book provides a theoretically grounded and practically oriented synthesis of the historical, contemporary and emerging international law related to indigenous peoples. It will be of great interest to scholars and lawyers in international law and human rights, as well as to those interested in the dynamics of indigenous and ethnic identity.
