The Gender and Public Policy Initiative holds public policy rountables each semester on issues of public policy through the lense of gender. Join on November 25 as our panel discusses: “Racism and Misogyny Propagated through Aboriginal Reserve Policy and the Indian Act”
The focus of the roundtable will be on the legacy of colonialism and its impact through theIndian Act and the reserve system. The roundtable will incorporate a discussion about how westernized conceptions of gender and race have perpetuated injustices against the First Nations people of Canada. Finally presenters will take account of possible policy recommendations that will focus on reconciliation.
A light lunch will be provided to participants.
