Summary

This book examines the policies and practices of Canada, the United States, Greenland, Denmark, Norway, New Zealand and Australia concerning governance on Aboriginal land including emerging systems for the management of native title areas, and the incorporation of Indigenous interests into land administration.

Indigenous Australians share with the Indigenous peoples of the world, a commitment to govern their lands. Increasingly, international law standards are providing for the right of Indigenous participation in decisions affecting natural resources and land use.
