Abstract

In this chapter, I have been invited to consider Articles 2, 6, and 7(1) of the UNDRIP. My aims are to situate these provisions within existing international and regional human rights law, to point to some major decisions of international bodies and domestic courts on the principles they contain, and, more generally, to draw attention to the different concepts of equality and non-discrimination that animate and justify the various rights contained in the UNDRIP.
