Abstract (Swedish)
I den här uppsatsen studerar jag the Doctrine of Discovery mot bakgrund av ursprungsbefolkningars rättigheter. Syftet med uppsatsen är att undersöka doktrinens förenlighet med FN:s deklaration om ursprungsbefolkningars rättigheter. Jag beskriver doktrinens och deklarationens relevanta innehåll för att uppnå detta syfte. I min analys applicerar jag deklarationens bestämmelser på doktrinen, med ändamålet att bestämma doktrinens legitimitet. Analysens resultat är att doktrinen är inkompatibel med fundamentala bestämmelser i deklarationen, och jag drar följaktligen slutsatsen att doktrinen är oförenlig med deklarationen.
Abstract
In this essay, I will study the Doctrine of Discovery in an Indigenous Rights perspective. The aim of the essay is to examine the legitimacy of the doctrine in light of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. To complete this purpose, I map the substance of the doctrine and analyze the relevant provisions of the declaration. In my analysis, I apply the provisions of the declaration on the doctrine, to inquire the legitimacy of the doctrine. The result of this analysis is that the doctrine is incompatible with key provisions of the declaration, and I consequently conclude that the doctrine is illegitimate.
