Aboriginal Policy Research: Exploring the Urban Landscape, volume 8 is a collection of 12 papers about Aboriginal Peoples presented at the Aboriginal Research Policy Conference held in Ottawa in 2009. Co-chaired by Dan Beavon of Indian and Northern Affairs Canada, Jerry White of the University of Western Ontario, and Peter Dinsdale of the National Association of Friendship Centres, this Aboriginal Research Policy Conference, like those before it, brought researchers, policy-makers, and the Aboriginal community together to make connections, hear about leading research, and learn together. This volume is edited by Jerry P. White and Jodi Bruhn and addresses governance, issues of service delivery, and social justice. The section on service delivery contains papers about the Role of Friendship Centres, the Mental Health of First Nations Children in Canada, Off-Reserve Child Welfare, and Indigenous Education Discourse in Canada. Section 3 of the book features articles on Trafficking of Aboriginal Women and Girls in Canada; Incarceration and the Aboriginal Offender; and Preventing Aboriginal Youth Gang Involvement in Canada.
