Court Interpretation of Indigenous Agreements: Database
The Centre for Energy, Petroleum and Mineral Law and Policy (CEPMLP) – University of Dundee (Scotland)
From the database description:
This database has been compiled from over 200 cases and articles from courts/tribunals in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United States of America. The decisions collated for the database are those that interpret or apply documents involving indigenous parties. The database records, for each decision:
- a brief summary of the decision (including URL where available);
- the details of the document(s) involving indigenous parties; and
- a summary of the court’s/tribunal’s engagement with that document.
The database’s search function allows users to focus and find decisions and articles according to particular need. For example, if researching the relevance of fiduciary obligations in relation to indigenous agreements, the database allows quick collation of all materials relevant to that.
