Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the territorial implications of the principles of self determination and autonomy for indigenous people. Self-determination and autonomy refer to political aspirations but also to territorial aspirations. The chapter focuses especially on the territorial aspect of the two principles and also explores how, despite the theoretical and practical difficulties, self-determination and autonomy have recently proven to be efficient platforms for indigenous people to enter into negotiations with States to gain control over their lands. The chapter argues that despite being two distinct principles, self-determination and autonomy are two waves of the same movement, which indicates the emergence of a right to territorial negotiations for indigenous people.

Keywords: autonomy; indigenous people; political aspirations; self-determination; territorial negotiations
