About the Author

Mattias Ahren is an Associate Professor at The Arctic University of Norway (Tromso). He heads the Sami and Indigenous Rights Group, and has written extensively on indigenous peoples' rights under international law as well as on the indigenous Sami people's rights under domestic law. He has substantial experience practicing indigenous peoples' rights, predominantly within the UN system; Ahren was involved in the negotiations that led to the adoption of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. He was also a member of the Expert Group that produced the draft Nordic Sami Convention, and has participated in the negotiations on various instruments being deliberated under the auspices of the World Intellectual Property Organization and the Convention on Biological Diversity.


Mattias Ahrens exceptional new book on the status of indigenous peoples under international law does not refer to Australia's haphazard and belated approach to recognition, or our stalled reconciliation process, but it does provide an illuminating, albeit sobering, reality check on the conceptual limits of non-Indigenous Australians. Each member of the federal Parliament would do well to read it. * Harry Hobbs, Alternative Law Journal *
