Necessary fictions: indigenous claims and the humanity of rights
Fitzpatrick, P. (2010) Necessary fictions: indigenous claims and the humanity of rights. Working Paper. Birkbeck College, University of London, London, UK.
Indigenous right insistently challenges the surpassing arrogations of sovereign right. In so doing, it affirms dimensions of being-together denied or stunted in sovereign modes of political formation. This force of Indigenous right is amplified here through legal and literary instantiations. These, in turn, uncover the continuously created and fictional quality of rights, revealing them to be necessary fictions.
