Mark Harris is Associate Professor in the Institute of Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice, UBC. His research focuses on Indigenous rights in relation to cultural heritage, land claims, the stolen generations, intellectual property and criminal justice issues. He has worked as a lawyer giving advice on native title claims for the Wurundjeri, Gunai Kurnai, Manatunga and Gubbi Gubbi Indigenous communities in Australia and continues to provide advice to Indigenous groups on a range of issues. As a representative of LatCrit, an NGO comprising legal academics working in the field of critical race theory and racism, he has participated in the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues. His recent research projects have included reviews of the operation of Koori (Aboriginal) courts in Victoria (a program that is not dissimilar to Toronto’s First Nations Gladue Courts), and the experience of Koori youth in the justice system. He also works in the field of postcolonial legal theory, which informed his manuscript titled Human Rights, the Rule of Law and Exploitation in the Postcolony: Blood Minerals that will be published by Routledge later this year. He is currently an editor, along with Denise Ferreira da Silva (Institute of GRSSJ, UBC) and Brenna Bhandar (SOAS, London) of the Routledge series, Law and the Postcolonial: Ethics, Politics and Economy.
