INS360Y1: Politics and Process of Reconciliation in Canada

This course uses relationship-building methodologies to develop skills to examine and explore the concept and processes, practice and promises of reconciliation. Through class discussion/seminars, guest speakers, and comparative readings in: Canadian and Indigenous colonial history; the findings of the Canadian Truth and Reconciliation Commission's Calls for Action; the Human Rights Tribunal Decision (Cindy Blackstock decision, January 26, 2016) on the Welfare of Indigenous Children; the rise of Indigenous solidarity movements in Canada , students will examine reconciliation and determine whether it is a different process than 'decolonization'.
