Abstract This paper attempts to find paths to the recognition of indigenous peoples' rights (IPR) and to identify the conditions that are necessary and/or sufficient for the recognition of these rights. A longitudinal comparative study of Southeast Asian minority rights regimes is carried out by means of a two-step fuzzy set analysis, combining structural conditions (e.g. the colonial legacy of legal pluralism and the percentage of the population that is indigenous), contextual conditions related to the political opportunity structure (e.g. democracy, international context, state participation in IPR, and related international regimes), and the presence of resonant indigenous movements. This paper relies on secondary data as well as in-depth interviews with indigenous peoples' activists across Southeast Asia and finds three potential paths to the recognition of IPR - one similar to the Latin American pattern and two that are endogenous to Southeast Asia.
