Sinopsis:

Canada is often called a pluralist state, but few commentators view Aboriginal self-government from the perspective of political pluralism. Instead, Aboriginal identity is framed in terms of cultural and national traits, while self-government is taken to represent an Aboriginal desire to protect those traits. Shifting Boundaries challenges this view, arguing that it fosters a woefully incomplete understanding of the politics of self-government.

Using relational pluralism as a theoretical lens, Tim Schouls contends that Aboriginal self-government is better understood when an "identification" perspective is adopted instead of a "cultural" or "national" one. He shows that self-government is not about preserving cultural and national differences as goods in and of themselves, but rather is about equalizing current imbalances in power to allow Aboriginal peoples to construct their own identities.

Book Description:

Using relational pluralism as a theoretical lens, the author takes a fresh look at the complex issue of aboriginal self-government.
