The adoption of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples by the United Nations General Assembly on 13 September 2007 was acclaimed as a major success for the United Nations system given the extent to which it consolidates and develops the international corpus of indigenous rights. This is the first in-depth academic analysis of this far-reaching instrument. Indigenous representatives have argued that the rights contained in the Declaration, and the processes by which it was formulated, obligate affected States to accept the validity of its provisions and its interpretation of contested concepts (such as 'culture', 'land', 'ownership' and 'self-determination'). This edited collection contains essays written by the main protagonists in the development of the Declaration; indigenous representatives; and field-leading academics. It offers a comprehensive institutional, thematic and regional analysis of the Declaration. In particular, it explores the Declaration's normative resonance for international law and considers the ways in which this international instrument could catalyse institutional action and influence the development of national laws and policies on indigenous issues.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...a solid contribution to the debate and discussion concerning the Declaration on Indigenous People's utility ...the collection provides the reader with a useful and timely reference work on the declaration as well as a thoughtful review of its key substantive aspects, including the issues of land rights, rights to participation, and the right to self-determination as well as discussion of the interconnection between indigenous and minority rights. -- Joanna Harrington * The Canadian Yearbook of International Law 2010 *
Overall, the compilation of articles constitutes a valuable resource for many researchers wishing to explore the implications of UNDRIP on the rights of indigenous peoples... and is well worth the read. -- Jane A. Hofbauer * Austrian Review of International and European Law, Volume 16 *
