Title of Research:

"The Recognition of the Indigenous Right to Self-determination"

Brief overview of research topic:

The relationship between settler societies and indigenous communities is a recurrent topic in the literature of multiculturalism. The reason for this is because it is one that involves issues of inclusion and cultural difference. However, the argument that I present is that multicultural political theory does not capture the normative claims of indigenous communities in settler societies. Instead, I argue that granting some level of self-government on the grounds of historical injustice and structural injustice, empowers indigenous communities to hold the settler state accountable. Second, I argue that it allows guaranteeing the protection of the individual rights of the members of the indigenous communities since this form of self-government is one based around the principle of joint-governance.
