Summary Leading experts in the analysis of ethnicity and indigenous rights explore why and how the circumstances of indigenous peoples are improving in some places of the world, while human rights continue to be abused in others. Drawing on case studies from Asia, Africa, Australia, and the Americas, the contributors investigate how political organization, natural resource management, economic development, and conflicting definitions over cultural, linguistic, religious, and territorial identity have informed indigenous strategies for empowerment
