Aboriginal Justice

Course Description

Indigenous Studies 348: Aboriginal Justice discusses the impact of the Canadian criminal justice system on Aboriginal people and communities, and the efforts Aboriginal people are making to regain control over the administration of justice. It has long been recognized that Aboriginal people make up a disproportionately large segment of the prison population in Canada. In this course, we discuss the reasons for this “over – representation,” and some of the strategies Aboriginal nations and communities are developing to address it.
