International Yearbook for Legal Anthropology, Volume 11


Editors: René Kuppe and Richard Potz
The Law & Anthropology Yearbook brings together a collection of studies that discuss legal problems raised by cultural differences between people and the law to which they are subject.
Volume 11 of Law & Anthropology includes eight studies that discuss various forms in which the rights of indigenous people are violated.
Topics include: the emergence of indigenous law in Chile as an example of legal pluralism; the impact of Peruvian national legislation on indigenous peoples; and the fishing dispute in Atlantic Canada following the decision of the Supreme Court of Canada acknowledging that the aboriginal right to fish was never extinguished.
