More Information
This ground-breaking Research Handbook provides a state-of-the-art discussion of the international law of Indigenous rights and how it has developed in recent decades.  Drawing from their extensive knowledge of the topic, leading scholars provide strong general coverage and highlight the challenges and cutting-edge issues arising for Indigenous peoples.
 
Offering readers an engaging review of ongoing lawmaking, adoption and implementation processes from both a global and regional perspective, it also investigates the important elements of Indigenous rights and economic issues, including trade, investment and economic growth.  Furthermore, it offers timely coverage of environmental rights, land and natural resources.
 
This essential Handbook will provide a useful discussion point for practitioners on Indigenous rights developments and scholars looking for an innovative approach on cutting-edge issues.  Policymakers wanting to understand the major issues with the implementation of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People (UNDRIP) will also find this invaluable.
Critical Acclaim
‘The Research Handbook on the International Law of Indigenous Rights provides a comprehensive account of Indigenous peoples in international law from orthodox, critical, realist, practical, interdisciplinary and aspirational perspectives. The breadth of topics covered, especially those less-examined in existing literature, as well as the inclusion of both well-established commentators with emerging scholars from around the globe, reflects the originality of this contribution and is to be highly commended.’
– Claire Charters, University of Auckland, New Zealand
