Indigenous Forms of Justice
- Lecture/Discussion: 3
Indigenous justice systems, customary laws and institutions are being rejuvenated globally by Indigenous peoples. This course will examine Indigenous perceptions of justice that may pose challenges to Western ideas and practices of law justice. It will also examine the influence of Western demands of rule of law and economics on Indigenous justice systems, specifically in terms of producing justice systems that have meaning to indigenous peoples and preserving ancestral values for future generations.
