Waiting For Some Angel: Indigenous Rights As An Ethical Imperative In The Theory And Practice Of Human Rights, Sam Grey Dec 2004

Waiting For Some Angel: Indigenous Rights As An Ethical Imperative In The Theory And Practice Of Human Rights, Sam Grey

Sam Grey

This article uses the stalled Draft Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as the impetus for an examination of arguments championing and opposing the framing of Indigenous rights as human rights. Failings both theoretical and practical – in the conceptualisation, promulgation and interpretation of human rights – have long left Aboriginal peoples at a disadvantage. The dual focus of Indigenous claims is unique in the rights lexicon, asserting the right to be simultaneously different from and equal to the majority population. Yet Indigenous rights are often perceived, by governments with the power to block their progress, as a threat to state ...


Pop Goes The Rapper: A Close Reading Of Eminem’S Genderphobia, Vincent L. Stephens Dec 2004

Pop Goes The Rapper: A Close Reading Of Eminem’S Genderphobia, Vincent L. Stephens

Vincent L Stephens

This article argues that controversial hip-hopper Eminem is more properly termed a genderphobe than a homophobe.

State Terrorism And Globalization: The Cases Of Ethiopia And Sudan, Asafa Jalata Dec 2004

State Terrorism And Globalization: The Cases Of Ethiopia And Sudan, Asafa Jalata

Asafa Jalata

This article compares the essence and effects of Ethiopian and Sudanese state terrorism by focusing on the commonalities between the two states. These peripheral African states have used global and regional connections and state terrorism as political tools for creating and maintaining the confluence of identity, religion, and political power. Ethiopia primarily depends on the West, and Sudan on the Middle East, since Christianity and Islam are the dominant religions in these African states respectively. While the Ethiopian state was formed by the alliance of Abyssinian (Amhara-Tigray) colonialism and European imperialism, the Sudanese state was created by British colonialism known ...
