Details: Product Description Building on the success of the first two editions, this volume briefly recaps the historical development and public acceptance of the concept of Aboriginal self-government, and then proceeds to examine its theoretical underpinnings, the state of Aboriginal self-government in Canada today, and the many practical issues surrounding implementation. Various self-government arrangements already in existence are examined including the establishment of Nunavut, the James Bay Agreement, and the Treaty Land Entitlement settlements. The 31 comprehensive essays address many interdisciplinary topics such as justice innovations, initiatives in health and education to grant greater Aboriginal control, Aboriginal-municipal government relations, Métis rights, and the intersection of women’s rights and self-government. Review “Professor Belanger … has assembled an impressive roster of distinguished contributors who together present a detailed and comprehensive analysis of the current issues that self-government practitioners most often face.” —John H. Hylton, editor of the 1st and 2nd editions, from the foreword Building on the success of the first two editions, this volume briefly recaps the historical development and public acceptance of the concept of Aboriginal self-government, then proceeds to examine its theoretical underpinnings, the state of Aboriginal self-government in Canada today, and the many practical issues surrounding implementation. Topics addressed include: justice innovations, initiatives in health and education to grant greater Aboriginal control, financing and intergovernmental relations, Aboriginal-municipal government relations, developing effective Aboriginal leadership, Métis self government aspirations, the intersection of women’s rights and self-government, and international perspectives. Various self-government arrangements already in existence are examined including the establishment of Nunavut, the James Bay Agreement, Treaty Land Entitlement settlements, the Alberta Métis settlements, and many other land claims settlements that have granted Aboriginal communities greater control over their affairs. This book is an interdisciplinary guide for practitioners, policy makers, and students interested in learning about government policy and the aspirations of Canada’s Aboriginal peoples. With the exception of three updated chapters, all of the material by the 31 contributors in this volume is new and original. Brief biographies of the contributors can be found on our web site.
