New book – Indigenous Peoples, Customary Law and Human Rights – Why Living Law Matters

This highly original work by Brendan Tobin (Law School, Griffith University, Australia) demonstrates the fundamental role of customary law for the realization of Indigenous peoples’ human rights and for sound national and international legal governance. The book reviews the legal status of customary law and its relationship with positive and natural law from the time of Plato up to the present.
