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.


Professor Malgosia Fitzmaurice, Queen Mary University of London
