Indigenous peoples and the discourses of human rights
A reflective narrative
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

The existing decentred normative structures of human rights allow for thought, calculation and action on what kind of society, what world we wish to inhabit and on what kind of people we are. Indigenous groups have vigorously utilised existing structures, while continuing to agitate for a more focused legal regime. The exposition of rights avenues in the previous chapters has sought to report on human rights in the context of international law, respecting the integrity of the various instruments examined and the domains of discourse they incorporate. The chapters have appraised the texts holistically, in line with the approaches of treaty bodies and other interpreters. This chapter addresses some generic issues raised in the work as a whole, in line with the ‘elementary questions’ raised at the outset.
