At this course, we will walk through where, when, and how systemic racism, unconscious and conscious bias, micro-aggressions, and white privilege exist at each stage of the criminal justice system—from policing to charge assessment, in the bail process, in trials, and at sentencing. We will explore how this impacts decisions and proceedings and the ways we can interrupt negative outcomes.
Government-to-Government Agreements & Implementation 2021*
Original Course Date: April 30, 2021
How do “reconciliation agreements” change what happens across land- and water-scapes? There are many government-to-government agreements between Indigenous Nations and the Province of BC. How those agreements are expressed in provincial law, or how they change state law, remains largely a mystery to most communities and lawyers. We will use case studies, including the Great Bear Rainforest agreements, to explore how the provincial government implements conservation-based reconciliation agreements.
