Despite the increasing frequency of the application of international human rights law to individuals, most of the world's international organizations draw their representation from the legitimate governments of sovereign nation-states. As a result, the many indigenous peoples who live within these states, or whose customary territory is divided by state boundaries, must rely on agencies of various sorts to protect and defend their human rights. In many cases, the states in which they nominally reside are uninterested in, or even hostile to, their claims.;This title approaches this complex subject from two directions: first, the existing framework of international law, both actual and potential, as embodied in the relevant provisions of international conventions and the case law of international tribunals; and second, specific issues that arise between indigenous peoples in the US, Canada, Latin America, Scandinavia, India, and Australia and the states which exercise jurisdiction in their homelands.
