Cultural property rights of indigenous peoples in Asia

Bengwayan, M. A.(2003). Intellectual and Cultural Property Rights of Indigenous and Tribal Peoples in Asia, Minority Rights Group International. Download

This report offers a good analysis of the current state of cultural rights of indigenous people in Asia. I found the report worth reading especially in two aspects. First, it shows the power relations of stakeholders involved in the appropriation of indigenous cultural property (indigenous peoples, the governments, corporation, etc). Second, the report examines the current state of cultural rights of indigenous people in Asia. It would be interesting to know about the state of indigenous people in Asia, in comparison with North American cases discussed in ETEC 521.
