About this book

This book challenges the common perception that global politics is making progress on indigenous issues and argues that the current global care for indigeneity is, in effect, violent in nature. Examining the inclusion of indigenous peoples in the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues and the Arctic Council, the authors demonstrate how seemingly benevolent practices of international political and legal recognition are tantamount to colonialism, the historical wrong they purport to redress. By unveiling the ways in which contemporary neoliberal politics commissions a certain type of indigenous subject—one distinguished by resilience in particular—the book offers a pioneering account of how international politics has tightened its grip on indigeneity.

Reviews

“Lindroth and Sinevaara-Niskanen’s comprehensive examination of the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues and the Arctic Council reveals a politics of inclusion premised on fantasized constructions of indigeneity by state and global actors. This timely and innovative work exposes contemporary myths of progress for indigenous peoples when operating within human rights regimes and the insincerity of global and regional forums for creating spaces of meaningful change amidst ongoing colonization.” (Jeff Corntassel, University of Victoria)

“This important book challenges the current celebration of indigeneity by looking at how this works through neoliberal ways of understanding the subject. It shows how arguments about resilience and adaptability actually undermine the creative agency of the indigenous subject while encouraging the view that vulnerability and uncertainty are inevitable. As such, the book provides a valuable resource in challenging dominant ways of thinking that appear to offer hope, while actually encouraging resignation.” (Jonathan Joseph, The University of Sheffield)
