Biographie

Kirsten Anker enseigne dans les domaines du droit des biens, de la théorie du droit et du droit autochtone. Elle entreprend des recherches reliant son expertise en matière de droit des biens et de droit autochtone à ses intérêts pour la preuve, les modes alternatifs de règlement des différends, la gestion des ressources naturelles et la pédagogie. Sa monographie, intitulée Declarations of Interdependence : A Legal Pluralist Approach to Indigenous Rights, présente plusieurs aspects de la revendication du titre ancestral en Australie et au Canada comme des points de départ pour ré-imaginer le droit. Elle publie principalement sur le défi que pose la reconnaissance de l’intersection entre le droit autochtone et le droit étatique aux conceptions traditionnelles du droit et de la souveraineté, s’inspirant de divers domaines tels que la théorie du droit, l’anthropologie, la philosophie occidentale et autochtone, et les études en langues et en traduction. Ses projets en cours incluent des recherches sur l’intégration des traditions juridiques autochtones dans la formation juridique, la cartographie digitale des revendications territoriales, la privatisation de la consultation des communautés autochtones, et la jurisprudence écologique.
