The recognition of indigenous peoples' rights is one of the contested issues in international law and jurisprudence.This book is constructed around the development of indigenous peoples' rights.Its main thesis is that the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples 2007 is a redeployment of the right to self-determination developed in the mid-twentieth century to address issues such as the rights of indigenous peoples to development,their lands,culture,biogenetic resources,traditional knowledge and folklore.In a jurisprudential analysis,the issues of global justice and the reconciliation of the international property rights to the rights of indigenous peoples to their biogenetic resources and traditional knowledge are discussed with candour.
