Unfinished Constitutional Business?: Rethinking Indigenous Self-determination

Indigenous self-determination is the recognised right of all peoples to freely determine their political status, and pursue their economic, social and cultural development. Unfinished Constitutional Business? offers fresh insights into the ways communities can chart their own course and realise self-determination. Because the history of colonisation is emotionally charged, the issue has been clouded by a rhetoric that has sometimes obstructed analysis.

Unfinished Constitutional Business? provides a comprehensive international exploration of self-determination. It surveys both common law and civil law systems, and argues that patterns are emerging that point to effective strategies that will allow communities to realise their goals.
