Description

Nested Federalism and Inuit Governance in the Canadian Arctic by Gary Wilson, Christopher Alcantara and Thierry Rodon, discusses Indigenous communities’ successful negotiations in the creation of self-governing regions. Most of these are situated within existing units of the Canadian federation, creating forms of nested federalism. This governance model is transforming Canada as it reformulates the relationship between Indigenous peoples and the state. Nested Federalism and Inuit Governance in the Canadian Arctic traces the journey toward self-governance in three northern regions: Nunavik, the Inuvialuit Settlement Region, and Nunatsiavut. This analysis provides insight into the evolution and consequences of Indigenous self-government.
