|Title:||Shifting global power and shifting state power: DRIP, BRICs and CANZUS||Contributor(s):||Burns, Marcelle (author)||Publication Date:||2013||DOI:||10.4324/9780203758496||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/26921||Abstract:||The adoption of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (DRIP) by the United Nations General Assembly in September 2007 has been heralded by many as a major breakthrough in the promotion of Indigenous rights under international law. Many however are sceptical as to whether DRIP actually promotes Indigenous rights or rather limits them in ways that serve the interests of nation states thereby diminishing the universality of human rights with respect to Indigenous peoples. This paper will examine how shifts in global power from the United States to the BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India and China) are likely to impact on the realisation of the right of self determination for Indigenous peoples. It will start by outlining the right of self determination as articulated in the Declaration, and in particular how the United States and its allies – the CANZUS group (Canada, Australia, New Zealand and United States) – were inﬂuential in shaping its form and content. The paper will then assess the extent to which the right to self determination is realised in Australia, the United States and the BRIC nations to provide an indication of the likely future direction of recognition and realisation of Indigenous rights at a global level.||Publication Type:||Book Chapter||Source of Publication:||Shifting Global Powers and International Law: Challenges and opportunities, p. 154-170||Publisher:||Routledge||Place of Publication:||Oxon, United Kingdom||ISBN:||9780415813587
