Free Download: Restoring Indigenous Self-Determination

E-INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS, MAY 3 2014 Series Editor: Marc Woons
Restoring Indigenous Self Determination E-IRIndigenous peoples find themselves locked in power struggles with dominant states and transnational actors who resist their claims to land, culture, political recognition and other key factors associated with the idea of self-determination. In 2007, the importance of Indigenous self-determination alongside that of nation-states was significantly enhanced when the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Declaration of Indigenous Peoples – suggesting that an important attitudinal shift might now be taking place internationally. This volume’s contributors suggest that much more work is needed in terms of, on the one hand, what Indigenous self-determination means in theory and, on the other hand, how it is to be achieved in practice.
