Description

In The Right Relationship: Reimagining the Implementation of Historical Treaties, John Borrows and Michael Coyle bring together a group of renowned scholars, both indigenous and non-indigenous, to cast light on the magnitude of the challenges Canadians face in seeking a consensus on the nature of treaty partnership in the twenty-first century. The diverse perspectives offered in this volume examine how Indigenous people's own legal and policy frameworks can be used to develop healthier attitudes between First Peoples and settler governments in Canada. While considering the existing law of Aboriginal and treaty rights, the contributors imagine what these relationships might look like if those involved pursued our highest aspirations as Canadians and Indigenous peoples. This timely and authoritative volume provides answers that will help pave the way toward good governance for all. John Borrows is the Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Law in the Faculty of Law at the University of Victoria. Michael Coyle is an associate professor and Director of Graduate Programs in the Faculty of Law at Western University. The Contributors include: Francesca Allodi-Ross, John Borrows, Michael Coyle, Sari Graben, Shin Imai, Julie Jai, Jean Leclair, Kent McNeil, Matthew Mehaffy, Aaron Mills, Sarah Morales, Jacinta Ruru, Sara L. Seck, Heidi Kiiwetinepinesiik Stark, and Mark D. Walters.
