Course Description

This course provides students with an overview of the practice and theory of international human rights law and policy as it has developed to address in particular the concerns of indigenous peoples worldwide. It supplements and bridges the law school's Federal Indian Law and International Human Rights courses, although neither of those two courses are prerequisites. This area of international human rights law now forms an important part of the legal practice and scholarship concerning indigenous peoples in the United States and other parts of the world. Given the doctrinal and practical limitations of domestic legal systems, indigenous peoples worldwide increasingly look to the processes of international human rights law as tools in their efforts to survive as distinct communities with historically-based cultures, political institutions, and entitlements to traditional or ancestral lands. Indigenous peoples' demands have generated a great deal of activity within global and regional human rights institutions, placing the concerns of these peoples at the forefront of international human rights law.
