World Polity Transformations and the Status of Indigenous Peoples

World Polity Transformations and the Status of Indigenous Peoples

(p.23) Chapter One World Polity Transformations and the Status of Indigenous Peoples
Uncommon Schools
Stanford University Press

The ascendance of nation-states as the dominant actors in the world polity during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries caused tremendous repercussions for the indigenous peoples. The autonomous legal and political standing of indigenous peoples waned and were incorporated and assimilated directly into national polities. This chapter discusses the origin of world polity and transformations, portraying the historical changes in the polity's constitutive structure: the number of entities with legitimate political, legal, and normative standing. It explains the international shifts in the status of indigenous peoples and examines the recognition of indigenous peoples's collective right to self-determination.

Keywords:   nation-states, indigenous peoples, national polities, world polity, self-determination
