Chapter
Full-text available
This chapter looks at the implementation of Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) in the Canadian context. It argues that while Canada has a well-established regime of Indigenous rights protection that provides the latter with opportunities to have a voice in decisions over natural resource extraction, this internal regime also paradoxically serv...
Article
The systemic turn in deliberative democracy theory seeks to connect specific deliberative exercises to the broader social and political context and processes of decision-making. However, it still lacks empirical foundations to capture the complexity of real-life deliberative processes. This is especially true in contexts where deliberation—at least...
Article
Full-text available
While it is increasingly recognised as a core element of the emerging international Indigenous rights regime, the implementation of the principle of free, prior and informed consent (fpic) remains contested. As the comparative literature shows, if and how fpic is implemented depend both on the institutional context and on the agency of actors invol...
Article
Full-text available
Indigenous peoples have gained considerable agency in shaping decisions regarding resource development on their traditional lands. This growing agency is reflected in the emergence of the right to free, prior, and informed consent (FPIC) when Indigenous rights may be adversely affected by major resource development projects. While many governments...
Article
Full-text available
Studies interested in Indigenous voting in Canada tend to focus on socio-economic, cultural and political factors that explain their lower levels of electoral participation. While highly relevant given Canada's ongoing reality as a settler-colonial state, these studies are of limited help in making sense of recent increases in electoral engagement...
Article
Global activism led to the emergence of new international standards concerning state obligations to consult Indigenous peoples and, under certain circumstances, obtain their free, prior and informed consent (FPIC) when extractive projects impact their rights and traditional territories. However, a growing literature shows that the implementation of...

Article
Full-text available
Abstract Indigenous peoples in Canada are increasingly developing their own mechanisms to assert their rights and exercise greater control over consultation processes concerning the development of their lands. They are notably developing unilateral protocols to establish when and how they should be consulted. We analyse 22 of these protocols to ma...
Article
Full-text available
The push to implement Open Access (OA) as the new standard for academic research dissemination is creating very real pressures on academic journals. In Canada, the Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) recently adopted a policy requiring that journals applying for its Aid to Scholarly Journals (ASJ) grant make their scholarly conte...
Chapter
Full-text available
L e gouvernement Trudeau a choisi d'articuler sa politique autochtone autour du principe de la réconciliation. Le discours adopté se voulait généreux et le programme ambitieux, en rupture nette avec le gouver-nement précédent, qui s'occupait surtout de gérer la « question » autochtone sans chercher à s'attaquer aux fondements structurels des nombre...
Chapter
Full-text available
The Trudeau government chose to focus its Aboriginal policy on the principle of reconciliation. The rhetoric was meant to be generous and the agenda ambitious, in stark contrast to the previous government, which focused on managing the Aboriginal “issue” without seeking to address the structural foundations of the many issues. By choosing reconcili...

La controverse entourant l’interprétation du consentement préalable, libre et éclairé (CPLE) comme un « droit de veto » est un obstacle majeur à la mise en œuvre de la Déclaration des Nations unies sur les droits des peuples autochtones. Controversy over the meaning of free, prior and informed consent (FPIC) is a major roadblock to Canada’s impleme...

Executive Summary This report addresses the potential role of the federal environmental assessment process in implementing the principle of Free, Prior and Informed Indigenous Consent (FPIC). We recommend that FPIC be recognized as a one of the core principles guiding a renewed EA process in Canada, through legislative changes and the development o...

Article
Full-text available
This article discusses the impact of neoliberalism on Indigenous peoples’ quest for self-determination in the Canadian context. “Neoliberal governance” is generally associated with a greater emphasis on the decentralisation of government programs and a growing penetration of market relations within Indigenous communities. But neoliberalism is also...

Longtemps exclus, puis victimes de politiques d’assimilation forcée, les peuples autochtones remettent aujourd’hui en question les conditions de leur appartenance et de leur participation au régime de citoyenneté des États issus de la colonisation européenne. Le processus de restructuration de l’État-providence pourrait influencer la dynamique des...

Article
Given its change-resistant nature, how does federalism evolve to reflect the changing social and political context?

Building on the literature on institutional change, I first suggest that both federations h...

Canadian Politics is intended to offer a comprehensive introduction to Canadian government and politics by a highly respected group of political scientists. The editors have organized the book into six parts. Part I examines Canadian citizenship and political identities, while Parts II and III deal with Canadian political institutions, including Aboriginal governments, and contain new chapters on the public service and Quebec. Parts IV and V shift the focus to the political process, discussing issues pertaining to culture and values, parties and elections, media, groups, movements, gender, and diversity. The chapters on Parliament, bureaucracy, political culture, political communications, social movements, and media are new to this edition. Finally, three chapters in the last section of the book analyze components of Canadian politics that have been gaining prominence during the last decade: the effects of globalization, the shifting ground of Canadian-American relations, and the place of Canada in the changing world order. Of the 21 chapters in this edition, 9 are new and the remainder have been thoroughly revised and updated.
