Theorizing Indigenous Rights

(p.120) 6 Theorizing Indigenous Rights
Politics in the Vernacular

Will Kymlicka (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews the book “Indigenous Peoples in International Law” by James Anaya. The book explores the theory that indigenous peoples are a distinct category, and should not be classified under the heading of national minorities. It is argued that this theory conflicts with the realities of international law and the self-understandings of many defenders of indigenous rights. It also appears to justify only transnational rather than permanent differences in the rights of indigenous peoples and stateless nations.

Keywords:   indigenous peoples, national minorities, international law, human indigenous rights
