It considers the variety of forms in which claims for Indigenous autonomy have been asserted by Indigenous nations in these different regions, including, land claims, treaty negotiations, self-governance, Indigenous assemblies, and constitutional challenges. In addition the course considers how Indigenous interests are mobilised internationally through organisations such as the United Nations, the Commonwealth, the Inuit Circumpolar Conference, the International Women's Forum and the International Working Group on Indigenous Affairs.
