Summary
The book surveys how indigenous peoples✹having historically been viewed by international law and those that created the law alike as mere 'ghosts in their own landscapes'✹have recently emerged as international legal subjects and possessors of both sovereign (self-determination) and private (property) rights over territories. The work analyses and presents the rights indigenous peoples and communities hold under the contemporary indigenous rights discourse, positing that the content and scope of such rights can largely be understood by properly knowing the meaning of only two concepts: namely 'peoples' and 'equality'. The book's articulation of the indigenous rights discourse thus focuses heavily on two areas of law. First, it looks at the issue of indigenous peoples' potential status as international legal subjects and holders of peoples' rights. In doing so, the work directs particular attention to the right to self-determination including to what might be the content and scope of this right when applied not to aggregate populations of states but to segments of states such as indigenous peoples. Second, the book discusses the correct understanding of equality under contemporary international law and asserts that this right underpins a substantial number of the rights that make up the indigenous rights discourse. In this context, the book specifically targets indigenous communities' property rights over territories and natural resources traditionally used or otherwise situated on or under their land. It infers that the content and scope of such rights follow directly from a correct understanding of equality.--
