Canadian courts have long called for the negotiated development of a pathway to reconciliation. However, many Canadian negotiation processes are seen to be unable to deliver meaningful change. Academic focus has primarily been on the perceived weaknesses of the Canadian constitutional law framework and the availability of alternatives based on international and Indigenous law. The course will examine the theory and practice of Crown-Indigenous Negotiations. The course is set up to facilitate conversation and dialogue between diverse perspectives with the goal of generating suggestions for improvement.
