Dans le présent article, les autrices examinent l’absence des femmes autochtones dans les régimes de gestion participative des ressources naturelles au Canada. Les autrices considèrent la pertinence juridique et politique des récits autochtones comme une source de savoir et comme une méthode pour traiter de l’actuelle absence de participation des f...
Article
Despite a radical change in the contemporary regulation of Indigenous lands, comparative scholarship remains focused on state determined rights and their development by the judiciary. This focus is rooted in an assumption that rights recognition bestows protection on identified groups and their lands. However, the model has limited the ability of c...

The United Nations Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf is expected to play an essential role in delineating the rights of the Arctic states to seabed resources in the Arctic Ocean. In this article, the authors look to the effect of scientific discourse on Commission authority. The authors argue that in addition to the conferral of its...
Article
In this study, the authors present evidence that the National Energy Board (NEB) does not evaluate whether the duty to consult has been met by applicants or the Crown for the purposes of regulatory approval. While NEB panels do draw conclusions about the sufficiency of consultation, they are not premised on the legal requirements established by the...

... De tous les enjeux concernant la gestion des ressources naturelles et la gouvernance territoriale en contexte autochtone, ceux du rôle et de la place des femmes autochtones sont parmi les plus méconnus (Valaskakis et al. 2009). Bien que le processus de marginalisation des Autochtones ait été assez bien documenté (Hania et Graben 2020 ;O'Faircheallaigh 2013), les recherches -principalement menées par des hommes -ont en général omis de considérer les conséquences de la colonisation sur la contribution des femmes autochtones à la vie sociale et à la gouvernance de leurs communautés et de leurs peuples, notamment en ce qui concerne l'utilisation du territoire et des ressources naturelles (Harell et Panagos 2013 ;Kuokkanen 2011 ;Lawrence et Anderson 2005). Selon LaFromboise et al. (1990), l'égalité des relations entre les hommes et les femmes autochtones est sous-représentée dans la littérature scientifique et la prépondérance des chercheurs masculins et non-autochtones a fait en sorte de surreprésenter le rôle des hommes. ...
... For example, state paternalism manifests in planning processes in which the state frames Indigenous Peoples as stakeholders, which is a contravention of inherent, Treaty, and Aboriginal rights and has been refuted by Indigenous Peoples (Bowie, 2020;Reo et al., 2017). Thirdly, land use planning reproduces capitalist relations of commodification and accumulation through resource extraction and by mobilizing notions of public and private land (Graben, 2016;Hoogeveen, 2015;Porter & Barry, 2016;Yellowhead Institute, 2019). Thus, contrasting epistemological and ontological foundations inform the value systems held by different parties at planning tables as well as the methods they employ. ...
... Finally, there is no evidence to suggest that a more prescriptive interpretation of consultation has in any way limited the Board's ability to approve project Reconciliation 2.0 applications. Prior to the decisions, the Board had a near-100% approval rate despite the fact that in 71% of its cases there were unresolved consultation issues (Graben and Sinclair 2015). Of the 19 identified regulatory decisions where potential impacts to Indigenous rights were at stake, the Board was the final decision-maker in 17 of them. ...
... Their task is to evaluate submissions by coastal states and to provide scientific and technical advice to states (Suarez, 2010). Contrary to a widespread misinterpretation, the CLCS does not adjudicate claims, but merely evaluates the scientific and technical merit of submissions (Graben & Harrison, 2015). Coastal states still make claims for the continental shelf on their own. ...
