About the Authors
  • The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples is seen primarily as an international human rights instrument. However, the Declaration also encompasses cultural, social and economic rights. Taken in the context of international trade and investment, the UN Declaration is a valuable tool to support economic self-determination of Indigenous peoples. This volume explores the emergence of Indigenous peoples' participation in international trade and investment, as well as how it is shaping legal instruments in environment and trade, intellectual property and traditional knowledge. One theme that is explored is agency. From amicus interventions at the World Trade Organization to developing a future precedent for a 'Trade and Indigenous Peoples Chapter', Indigenous peoples are asserting their right to patriciate in decision-making. The authors, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous experts on trade and investment legal, provide needed ideas and recommendations for governments, academia and policy thinkers to achieve economic reconciliation.

    • Proposes new views and perspectives of international economic law to explore the intersections of economic law, international trade and investment negotiations through the lens of Indigenous rights, human rights and environmental law
    • Provides new understanding and analysis of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples to encourage readers to explore the UN Declaration as an important instrument in economic self-determination of Indigenous peoples
    • Offers the newest legal analysis of Indigenous peoples and international trade and investment
