© The several contributors, 2008. All rights reserved. This chapter considers how the claims and remedies for cultural losses sustained by indigenous people, collectively and individually, push the existing boundaries of international law. First, it outlines how culture and its manifestations are conceptualized by indigenous peoples. It then explains how claims for cultural loss are framed by expanding upon existing international human rights law and international humanitarian law. Finally, it examines the application of recent developments at the international and regional levels to accommodate broader mechanisms of redress for cultural loss sustained by indigenous peoples.
