Overview

The UN's International Decade of the Rights of Indigenous People recently ended in the failure of negotiating governments to accommodate, within international law, the concept of a 'collective' right to land. The consequences of such a failure are far-reaching for the world's indigenous peoples. This book, which arose out of the 13th annual Oxford Amnesty Lecture series, brings together a number of experts from diverse fields and organisations- anthropologists,historians, lawyers, conservationists, and campaigners - to debate the whole notion of 'Land Rights'. What do indigenous people mean when they invoke their collective right to land? Set against these rights are the individual rights of property-owners or corporations. How are national governments, andinternational law, to arbitrate between them?
