I continue to focus on the place of Indigenous law within Canada’s legal structures, and the importance of Indigenous values in environmental decision-making. Here is some of what I have been doing:
On June 2018, I became part of an award winning research grant, working with Principal Investigator Catherine Choquette (Université de Sherbrooke), in an overall $266,890 SSHRC Insight Grant for the project “L’adaptation du droit de la gouvernance aux changements climatiques” (Adapting Governance Laws to Climate Change). This collaborative project will examine the appropriateness of existing legal norms and processes to meet the challenges posed by climate change. I will investigate the relevance of Indigenous norms to the development of appropriate regulatory processes to address climate change, and the adequacy of existing laws to take into account the rights and interests of Indigenous peoples”.
