Indigenous Rights in Latin America: A Legal Historical Perspective - New Paper on SSRN

June 02, 2017

Thomas Duve just published a new paper in our SSRN research paper series dealing with indigenous rights in Latin America from a legal historical perspective.

The paper offers an introduction to the recognition of indigenous rights both in the present and the past, surveys the legal historiography of indigenous rights in Latin America by emphasising the changing contexts of historiography, the new interpretation of the indigenous peoples' histories (especially in the overall colonial period) and recent research on the history of the rights of the indigenous peoples in Latin America. Finally, it addresses some methodological problems of doing research on the legal history and the rights of indigenous peoples.
