Call For Papers


Indigenous peoples from around the world have adopted the idea of autonomy in an attempt to engage with modernity on their own terms. What is remarkable is the range and diversity of the notion of autonomy, from treaty-based territorial autonomy to non-territorial, cultural rights based autonomy projects.

We are calling for papers that explore the historical and contemporary causes of both the idea of indigenous autonomy and the form it takes in specific cases; why do some projects take the form of territorial autonomy while others focus on cultural recognition and rights? We are interested in receiving papers that provide a comparative analysis and review of the successes and drawbacks experienced by different indigenous peoples from around the world in order to draw important lessons for ongoing and future indigenous autonomy projects.
