For indigenous communities in the U.S. and around the globe, the question of rights has been a central one. In recent debates, this question has been closely connected to issues of land and water rights, as well as to concepts of indigenous sovereignty.

Margaret Stephenson (University of Queensland, Australia), a renowned expert in comparative indigenous law, will compare current debates on indigenous rights in Australia and North America, looking both at the specificity of national histories and at the possibility of a comparative, transnational perspective on indigenous rights.
