Language: English . Brand New Book. Navigating Neoliberalism argues that neoliberalism, which drives government policy concerning First Nations in Canada, can also drive self-determination. And in a globalizing world, new opportunities for indigenous governance may transform socioeconomic well-being. Gabrielle Slowey studies the development of First Nations governance in health, education, economic development, and housing. Contrary to the popular belief that First Nations suffer in an age of state retrenchment, privatization, and decentralization, Slowey finds that the Mikisew First Nation has successfully exploited opportunities for greater autonomy and well-being that the current political and economic climate has presented.

Synopsis : What happens to a First Nation after the successful negotiation of a land claim? In a globalizing world, new opportunities for indigenous governance may lead to the transformation of indigenous socio-economic well-being. "Navigating Neoliberalism" argues that neoliberal globalization, which drives government policy toward First Nations in Canada, also drives First Nation self-determination.The author studies the development of First Nations governance in several policy fields, including health, education, economic development, and housing. What emerges is a theoretical and empirical picture of one First Nation as it navigates its way through neoliberalism. The author concludes that, contrary to popular belief that First Nations suffer in an age of state retrenchment, privatization, and decentralization, the opposite may be true. Indeed, for the Mikisew Cree First Nation the end result is an opportunity for further self-determination."Navigating Neoliberalism" tackles a topical issue central to Canadian politics and Canadian federalism. It will be of interest to students and practitioners of public policy, political economy, and political science, as well as members and leaders in First Nations communities.
A propos de l'auteur: Gabrielle Slowey is an assistant professor of political science at York University.
