Sample text

Recovering the dialogic, constitutive aspects of the terms of recognition, as Taylor’s ‘fusion of horizons’ tries to do, is an important rejoinder to ethnocentrism and reification, but it takes insufficient notice of the lop-sided dynamics of oppression. Deconstructing the Recognition 41 production of identity through relations of power is a necessary salve to the pathology of recognition. Importantly, though, the solution is not more recognition from those who have withheld it, but an acceptance of the terms of our dependent human condition,13 what Markell (2003) calls a politics of acknowledgement (35).

But lawyerly usage is largely unreflexive, and there is relatively little attempt in legal theory to connect legal recognition to the heavily worked concept in the psychology, philosophy and politics of difference and identity. Recognition is also a key term in legal discourses of Indigenous rights, which cannot help but engage with themes of difference and identity to justify distinctive rights, but I will argue in this chapter that, for the most part, they employ an impoverished concept of recognition that confounds the justice claims of Indigenous peoples.

In the wave of Indigenous rights recognition around the world since the 1970s, national regimes of recognition are often seen as initiating a post-colonial moment of sorts, making a break with a past in which Indigenous peoples were ignored or denigrated, and promising a new footing for future relationships between them and dominant society.
