WORKSHOP: 'The History and Theory of Treaty-Making with Indigenous Peoples'

The History and Theory of Treaty-Making with Indigenous Peoples

22 October 2014 - 3:00-6:30pm 

Room 313, Law Building, School of Law, Queen Mary University of London, Mile End Road, London E1 4NS

Hosted by the Centre for Law and Society in a Global Context (CLSGC).


The issue of indigenous peoples and treaties is one of the most interesting and intriguing questions of international law. The 2007 United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples mentions in several places of its Preamble and in Article 37 rights granted by ‘treaties, agreements and other constructive arrangements between States and indigenous peoples are, in some situations, matters of international concern, interest, responsibility and character.’

The workshop will analyse the legacy of these historical treaties with indigenous peoples. It will also assess whether these instruments can play a role in fostering the rights of indigenous peoples within States at a present time.
