From Unitary State to Plural, Asymmetric State: Indigenous Quest in France, New Zealand and Canada


Jari Uimonen

During the past decades, indigenous peoples have started to demand their rights around the world. The judicial perceptions of indigenous peoples often contradict national interests and ideologies. Globalisation has weakened the states of the nation-state. In this process, the status of indigenous peoples has continuously evolved.

This work compares the legal status of indigenous peoples in three unitary states, France, New Zealand and Canada, with historical and contextual approach. It indicates that the trend is toward a more asymmetric connection, or flexible pluralism, in terms of states and legal systems.
