Human Rights of Indigenous Peoples

Author: Cynthia Cohen
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.
