The Challenge of Time and Responses of International Human Rights Law

Stamatopoulou, Elsa

In this brief essay, I will first explore what international human rights theory and practice can contribute to the time-related challenges mentioned above. Then I will try to bring out the dynamics that the experiences of the past 40 years have created, namely through the birth and growth of the international Indigenous Peoples’ movement and its interface with the UN: what special conditions has this interface created that need to be taken into account in any Truth, Reconciliation and Justice process concerning Indigenous Peoples?
