Indigenous Peoples and Public Policy
0.5 Credit

Hours per week:
  • Lecture/Discussion: 3

Relations between indigenous peoples and the state underwrite some of the most significant policy challenges - and opportunities - in Canada. This course explores policy-making through the lens of this evolving relationship, including its impacts on such critical issues as self-determination and land claims, economic and resource development, and barriers to adequate education, employment, housing and health for indigenous communities. The Canadian case will be explored in comparative context, with reference to American and Mexican policy-making and indigenous advocacy. (Cross-listed as NO330.)
