  • Adopting a Rights-based Approach to Non-communicable Diseases among
           Indigenous Peoples in Africa
    • Authors: Ebenezer Durojaye; Mariam Wallet Med Aboubakrine
      Abstract: Source: Page Count 18This article examines non-communicable diseases (NCDs) as a challenge among indigenous population in Africa. From a rights-based perspective, the article considers some of the social determinants of health and other challenges that can aggravate NCDs among indigenous groups in Africa. It further examines the recognition of the right to health of indigenous populations under international law. This is followed by a discussion on some of the barriers to addressing NCDs among indigenous peoples in the region. It concludes by urging African governments to be more proactive in adopting measures grounded in human rights standards to address the rising incidence of NCDs among indigenous peoples in the region.

  • Addressing the Rights of Indigenous Peoples to Resources in Malaysia: A
           Procedural Justice Approach
    • Authors: Izawati Wook
      Abstract: Source: Page Count 27The concept of procedural justice has been promoted as a potential solution in the contest for resources involving indigenous peoples and others. It seeks the formulation of processes that are fair and just both to indigenous peoples and to the other parties affected. Using a comparative approach, this paper analyses processes and mechanisms adopted in some selected common law jurisdictions against the ideal of procedural justice. It seeks to consider mechanisms which conform to the principle of procedural justice to address the issue of indigenous peoples’ rights to land and resources in Malaysia. The principle is relevant in Malaysian common law which also subjects matters affecting fundamental liberties to procedural justice. Comparative perspectives provide models for practical applications of indigenous peoples’ rights. They assist policy analysis through learning from the successes and failures of other jurisdictions in improving legal reform.

  • From Syria to the Land Down Under – the Land of Opportunity'
           (Advance Article)
    • Authors: Naomi Birdthistle; Antoinette Flynn Susan Rushworth
      Abstract: Source: Page Count 22Ethnic entrepreneurship has emerged as an economic, societal, and political panacea to the growing number of refugees on the move across the globe. Employing the 2014 World Economic Forum framework, this article seeks to explore the Australian entrepreneurship ecosystem, to determine whether it is enabling migrants and/or refugees to become entrepreneurs with a focus on Syrian refugees. At its core, the Australian entrepreneurship ecosystem is comparatively strong in terms of human capital, accessible markets, and finance. Even within the three ‘core’ characteristics of the ecosystem, the Australian ecosystem falls short when examined through the lens of refugee entrepreneurs. Recommendations under the 2014 World Economic Forum framework are made that will assist key stakeholders in developing an entrepreneurial ecosystem.

  • Federalism and Development: The Ethiopian Dilemma
    • Authors: Assefa Fiseha
      First page: 333
      Abstract: Source: Volume 25, Issue 3, pp 333 - 368Key to Ethiopia’s remarkable political and economic changes is its transformation from highly homogenising and centrist rule to a federal system aiming at managing its complex diversity. The post-1991 dispensation has ended years of civil war, and served as a foundation for the impressive economic performance. Lately the country has continued to face wide-spread protests. How does one explain the paradox between an impressive economic performance versus growing political instability' Development is centrally designed and managed along with the identification of poverty as an existential threat against which all resources must be mobilised. This means that development takes overriding priority and a central role, compromising the constitutional autonomy of the states. The outcome as witnessed in the protests is new mobilisation and conflict unleashed by growing ethno-nationalism. The absolute dominance of a single vanguard party that monopolised power has also overshadowed institutions and sidelined political opposition while emboldening hardliners.

  • Abuja Peoples of Nigeria as Indigenous Peoples in International Law
    • Authors: Sylvanus Gbendazhi Barnabas
      First page: 431
      Abstract: Source: Volume 25, Issue 3, pp 431 - 457There is no agreed definition of indigenous peoples (IPs) as the international community has not agreed to any. However, an examination of international instruments and literature on the subject presents a picture. This article examines the definition of IPs and its relevance to Africa. The case study of Abuja, Nigeria is used as a vehicle to challenge the existing descriptions of IPs. It argues that international law should expand its definition of IPs to include collectives of peoples with diverse cultures in Africa. Analogical insights are drawn from international child rights law to advance the argument that international law on IPs’ rights can learn from the evolution of international children’s rights law.

  • The Limits of Europeanization on the Minority Rights in Serbia: The Roma
           Minority
    • Authors: Teresa Cierco
      First page: 458
      Abstract: Source: Volume 25, Issue 3, pp 458 - 484Among the main conditions for joining the European Union (EU) is the protection of human rights, and particularly the protection of minority rights. In this way, the EU has become an important external dynamic that changes domestic policies. In this article, the limits of Europeanization are analysed at two different levels: at the legal and at the societal level. In recent years, Serbia has adopted legislative changes that have increased the protection level granted to minorities in the country. However, its implementation/internalization is considered to be one of the biggest post-conflict problems in Serbia. This article argues that Europeanization has strong limitations regarding minority rights in Serbia. Looking to the situation of the Roma minority in the country, we try to access the limits of Europeanization at the societal level, arguing that they are still victims of discrimination, segregation and limited participation in public life.

  • The League of Nations and Minorities: The Non-receivability of
           ‘Non-treaty’ Petitions (Advance Article)
    • Authors: Roser Cussó
      Abstract: Source: Page Count 25Minority protection under the League of Nations (LoN) generated an unprecedented level of activity and debate on the topic, which in turn contributed to the general advancement of human rights. Nevertheless, it is also important to note that the League’s Secretariat developed rather conservative practices regarding the receivability of minorities’ petitions as well as on some important related decisions. Our perspective here contrasts with what is commonly found in the associated historiography, i.e. that the part played by the Minorities Section was rather neutral. Without downplaying the importance of some states’ resistance to the protection of minorities and its supervision, the Section’s narrow interpretation of the LoN jurisdiction is noteworthy, as is the absence of serious attempts to take advantage of the decisions in favour of minorities made by the LoN Assembly. The way the Section constructed the non-receivability of petitions, especially those which were ‘outside treaties’, illustrates our argument.

  • Political Severance – Secession Referenda, Their Convocation and
           Ratification: A Comparative Study (Advance Article)
    • Authors: Lorne Walker-Nolan
      Abstract: Source: Page Count 30Recent years have seen increases in demands for secession via referenda. Catalonia, Kurdistan, Quebec, Scotland, South Sudan and other polities have seen this process as a means of resolving sovereignty disputes. There is however, considerable academic, political and legal argument against secession and this study will explore these objections and shall ask if secession is an automatic right. It shall also investigate such referenda, comparing how they are convoked and ratified, and the legal and political aftermath once they have been held – if indeed they have been permitted.

  • Ethnic Conflict and Violence in Myanmar: The Exodus of Stateless Rohingya
           People (Advance Article)
    • Authors: Mahanam Bhattacharjee Mithun
      Abstract: Source: Page Count 17Since independence, different minority groups in Myanmar have experienced ethnic conflicts and violence. Among them, the Rohingya community face the worst challenges. Due to government-imposed restrictions and the denial of the government to grant them citizenship and constitutional rights, the Rohingya face many problems in their everyday life. This article aims at revealing the main reasons behind the ethnic conflicts in Rakhine state of Myanmar and the reasons that force the Rohingya people to flee the country to such a huge extent.

  • Can ‘Non-territorial Autonomy’ Serve as an Analytical Term'
           Between ‘Thick’ and ‘Thin’ Approaches
    • Authors: Alexander Osipov
      Abstract: Source: Page Count 26Non-territorial autonomy (NTA) has acquired a variety of meanings ranging from a vague principle (a ‘thin’ approach) to a distinct structural feature of an organization (a ‘thick’ approach). Almost all these interpretations rest on an uncritical reification of such notions as ‘group’ and ‘community’. It leads to an uncritical categorization as NTA of numerous different arrangements and practices, that duplicates the existing terminology and brings no added value to the study of these phenomena. Attempts to outline institutional settings for communal self-organization based on the same premises involve negligence of potential scenarios and outcomes. The author concludes that the interpretations of NTA based on groupist assumptions significantly limit analytic perspectives. Interpretations resting on a non-groupist approach can serve analytical purposes, but their application is optional and barely instrumental. Beyond this, NTA shall be regarded and studied as a category of practice and a matrix for framing diversity issues among policy-makers.

  • The Status of the Community in Bangladesh under Domestic and International
           Law (Advance Article)
    • Authors: Md. Kamrul Hasan Arif
      Abstract: Source: Page Count 15The problems concerning the Bihari community is one of the oldest long-standing issues between Bangladesh and Pakistan. In 1971, after the independence of Bangladesh, the Bihari lost their citizenship. Presently, they are stateless and living in various camps in different parts of Bangladesh. This community wanted to be repatriated to their own country, Pakistan, but it denied them citizenship status, although a large number have been repatriated to Pakistan as their country of origin. Recently, in March 2015 the Supreme Court of Pakistan rejected the issue of stranded Pakistanis in Bangladesh regarding repatriation or taking these people back. This article has tried to determine the status of the Bihari community, what a lasting solution might be, and what the role is of international organisations in helping this community under domestic and international law.

  • for Cultural Minorities – Thinking beyond “Territory” as a
           Prerequisite for Self-government (Advance Article)
    • Authors: Bertus De Villiers
      Abstract: Source: Page Count 30Decentralisation in its different forms is often associated with territorial governments, be it regional or local governments. There is a close correlation between decentralisation to territorial entities and the protection of minorities that live concentrated in those areas. This article challenges the presumption that decentralisation must by necessity require a territorial element. It is argued that if minorities establish corporate legal entities, various forms of decentralisation could be used to empower language, cultural and religious communities to look after their own affairs. Several case studies are referred to in order to illustrate how in practice non-territorial forms of self-government have been developed. Finally, recommendations are made for establishment of community government in different forms.

  • No Way Home for the Chagossians: Law and Power Politics (Advance Article)
    • Authors: Caecilia Alexandre; Konstantia Koutouki
      Abstract: Source: Page Count 32If home is where the heart is, then home for the Chagossian people is the Chagos archipelago. The story of the Chagos people is not very well known, but it is a story of injustice and of a legal and political battle to bring an end to this injustice. Evicted from their homes following a decision by the British and American Governments to construct an Anglo-American military base on one of the archipelago’s islands, Diego Garcia, the Chagossians have fought in political and legal arenas for the right to return home for nearly 50 years. The basis for their demand to return home is well-founded under national and international legal principles. However, despite political and legal gains made throughout the years, the right to return home, remains elusive.

  • Free, Prior and Informed Consent () of Indigenous Peoples before Human
           Rights Courts and International Investment Tribunals: Two Sides of the
           Same Coin'
    • Authors: Belen Olmos Giupponi
      Abstract: Source: Page Count 45This article highlights the advances and drawbacks in the recognition and implementation of the right to free, prior and informed consent (FPIC) of indigenous peoples in light of international litigation. Although a certain amount of progress has been achieved, this article demonstrates that a normative gap subsists between the international norms applicable and state practice. In exploring the topic, the article brings together diverse legal and theoretical components from several areas of law, some of which are not usually regarded as associated with FPIC. In particular, the article considers the interpretation of case law decided by international human rights bodies, regional human rights courts and investment tribunals, critically examining the constraints on their interpretation. The article concludes by analysing the various strategies followed to implement FPIC, and argues for an understanding of FPIC that reaches beyond the human rights arena.

  • The Immigrants’ and Refugees’ Right to ‘Family Life’: How Relevant
           are the Principles Applied by the European Court of Human Rights'
           (Advance Article)
    • Authors: Georgios Milios
      Abstract: Source: Page Count 30The article examines the case law of the ECtHR on immigration and asylum cases under ‘family life’ under ECHR Article 8. It argues that certain criteria of the Court in both admission and in expulsion cases do not appear to be particularly relevant to the actual notion of family life. We argue that besides its being scarcely relevant to the nature of family life, the ‘elsewhere approach’ applied by the Court in these cases is indirectly discriminatory for certain categories of aliens. Certain of the criteria taken into consideration in expulsion cases do not aim at measuring family life, but rather the level of integration that the immigrant enjoys in the hosting country. Rather recently, the Court seems to have even taken into account ‘financial considerations’ in its case law on family life. The article argues that a different approach in Article 8 admission and expulsion cases is necessary.
