This volume explores the manners in which Indigenous peoples¿ experiences of the law has and is being transformed from an oppressive system of denying rights to the site of contestation and articulation of claims. The book provides a comprehensive survey of the experience of Indigenous peoples and their changing relationship with national and international juridical frameworks. The contributors all of whom are renowned experts in the field discuss topics including: legal identities and recognition; sovereignty and self-determination; Indigenous claims and international law; and Indigenous customary law and knowledge.

Rather than focusing upon one regional or national grouping, the book includes studies of Indigenous Peoples¿ experiences of the law in Latin America, North America, Oceania, Africa and Asia. It provides an original analysis of Indigenous peoples¿ encounters with the law at both the national and international levels. The breadth and scholarship of this book makes it an essential reference work for students, scholars and practitioners working in the field.
