Certificate in Aboriginal Leadership - Aboriginal Governance Models And Intergovernmental Relations

LEAD 2007  Aboriginal Governance Models And Intergovernmental Relations


LEAD 1006


Two hours of lecture and one hour of service learning per week for one term.




Effective governance is examined in light of: governmental structures, intergovernmental relations, and different theories of power and politics. Students determine how Aboriginal governance can function effectively while still preserving Aboriginal cultures, values and worldviews. Focus is given to how differing political identities inform distinct ideas about development, education, resource extraction, and the function of band councils. Students also explore this deeply significant relation between aboriginals and the land in terms of historical practices, contemporary political negotiations, and towards a re-thinking of human relations to nature. This course includes a service learning component.
