Re-Enchanting the World: Indigenous Peoples' Rights as Essential Parts of a Holistic Human Rights Regime
UCLA Journal of International Law and Foreign Affairs
Indigenous peoples have maintained key features of their identity against many challenges over time. Under the banner-cry of cultural diversity, the modem community of states has recognized their rights to their culture, their self-determination, and their land. These novel communal rights are necessary elements of a legal regime that responds fully to human needs and aspirations.
