Constitutional recognition of Indigenous peoples in New Zealand and Ecuador

Gussen, Benjamen Franklen (2016) Constitutional recognition of Indigenous peoples in New Zealand and Ecuador. In: Constitutional recognition of first peoples in Australia: theories and comparative perspectives. Federation Press, Sydney, New South Wales, pp. 247-256. ISBN 9781760020781

Abstract

This chapter provides an analytical framework for comparative analysis of constitutional recognition of Indigenous Peoples. Specifically, the chapter looks at this process in the context of New Zealand, a jurisdiction that shares a similar colonial heritage with Australia (and Ecuador, a jurisdiction at the forefront of plurinational constitutional recognition of Indigenous rights).1 The analysis identifies an optimal approach to constitutional recognition that could provide guidance in the Australian context.
