This volume describes and analyses the Surinamese legal system as it relates to the rights of indigenous peoples and Maroons. The rights of these peoples have not been systematically addressed in this context before, nor have they ever been the subjects of extensive academic research.
The book provides a good starting point for discussions of the rights of indigenous peoples and Maroons, hopefully leading to a full recognition of their rights in Suriname.
