Contributors include Indigenous leaders, legal scholars and practitioners, state representatives, and representatives from NGOs, with extensive knowledge of and experience in Indigenous peoples' human rights law, policy, and practice.

Wilton Littlechild offers his perspective on treaties in Consistent Advocacy: Treaty Rights and the UN Declaration.
