Indigenous Peoples and Human Rights

Patrick Thornberry

Manchester University Press

This chapter takes the draft Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as a potential future global standard for indigenous peoples—‘emerging law’—and appraises its principal characteristics. The draft Declaration incorporates a far-reaching ensemble of pro-indigenous concepts. The process of drafting and debating has contributed to and been the beneficiary of a broad and ongoing process of indigenous sensitisation in the international community. The prospects for the survival of the draft in anything like its present form are unclear. However, despite the difficulties in reaching accommodation, there has been a narrowing of differences between indigenous peoples and governments in key respects over the whole process.
