International Conference

Indigenous Peoples' Sovereignty and the Limits of Judicial and Legal Pluralism: American Tribes, Canadian First Nations and Scandinavian Sami Compared

The conference will explore the constitutional framework of judicial autonomy as a component of the right to self-government of American Tribes, Canadian First Nations and Sami people in Scandinavia in a comparative perspective. Presentations shall also focus on the judicial interaction with the Constitutions and the legal and judicial systems of the concerned States. Particular attention will be paid to independent indigenous judicial powers and courts as well as to issues of (independently) determining membership to the indigenous group (and judicial locus standi).

The topic of the conference as well as the issues of legal pluralism related to indigenous peoples will be introduced by a book presentation (N. Bruce Duthu's Shadow Nations).

The conference is part of:

- the Prin Research Project "Jurisdiction and Pluralisms"

- the course "Comparative Constitutional Law of Groups and Minorities" held by prof. Bruce Duthu and prof. Jens Woelk during the Fall Semester

- Progetto Ateneo Minoranze;

- PhD Programme in International Studies, University of Trento
