Description

Navigating Neoliberalism argues that neoliberalism, which drives government policy concerning First Nations in Canada, can also drive self-determination. And in a globalizing world, new opportunities for Indigenous governance may transform socioeconomic well-being. Gabrielle Slowey studies the development of First Nations governance in health, education, economic development, and housing. Contrary to the popular belief that First Nations suffer in an age of state retrenchment, privatization, and decentralization, Slowey finds that the Mikisew First Nation has successfully exploited opportunities for greater autonomy and well-being that the current political and economic climate has presented. Gabrielle Slowey is an assistant professor of political science at York University.
