Settler Colonialism, Race, and the Law

NYU Press

International law has evolved to acknowledge fundamental rights essential to the deconstruction of racial hierarchy and the dismantling of colonial relations. These include the protection of human dignity, the recognition of Indigenous rights, the right to be free from racial discrimination and xenophobia, and recognition of the prohibition on genocide as a preemptory norm. In each of these areas it recognizes more substantive rights and provides a broader range of remedial options than are available under US law.
