Abstract: "This paper examines the phenomenon of ‘biocultural rights’ that have arisen through multilateral environmental agreements since the coming into force of the Convention on Biological Diversity in 1993. The paper identifies bicultural rights as emerging from the confluence of three of the most significant social movements of the last two decades i.e. the political ecology, the commons and the indigenous peoples movements. The paper concludes with a short history of biocultural rights and its future trajectory."
