The adoption of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) on the 13th of September, 2007 marks a turning point in the global recognition of indigenous peoples and their rights. This remarkable achievement is, however, embedded in a long process of negotiations – one that, as the chapters in this book make clear, is still ongoing. This book seeks to contribute to a deeper understanding of these processes, and how they are taking shape at different scales of governance.
