Organizers invite registration for a book reading of Nested Federalism and Inuit Governance in the Canadian Arctic by Gary N. Wilson. This event will be held via Zoom on Friday, 23 April 2021, 10:00-11:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time.

Event description:

Gary Wilson is a professor of political science of the University of Northern British Columbia and associate director of the Western Association for Canadian Studies. During this event, he will read from and discuss Nested Federalism and Inuit Governance in the Canadian Arctic (2020), co-authored with Christopher Alcantara and Thierry Rodon. From the book cover, "The Canadian federal system was never designed to recognize Indigenous governance, and it has resisted change. But Indigenous communities have successfully negotiated 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 ... traces the journey toward self-governance in three northern regions."

This event is sponsored by the Western Association for Canadian Studies; University of Northern British Columbia; the Canadian Studies Center, Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies; and Boise State University.
