From Values to Policy and Legislation

From Values to Policy and Legislation:
Breaking Trail in a Heritage Self-Governing Context
March 22, 2013

In an effort to engage in cross-cutlural and interdisciplinary dialogue, this symposium will draw together Yukon First Nations representatives, policy makers and legal experts to explore how non-tangible values (e.g. balance, respect, integrity, and responsibility) and Indigenous law, can be used to create policy and legislation in the area of heritage by self-governing Yukon First Nations. Ultimately we aim to consider how new community driven policy-making strategies can meet the unique needs of Aboriginal communities. 

This event is co-sponsored by the York Centre for Public Policy & Law and is part of the Social Sciences and Humanties Research Council funded Cost of Justice Project.
