Indigenous law, women and human rights

Indigenous law, women and human rights

UVic recently launched the world's first Indigenous law program. That's a welcome opening for new conversations on how we understand Indigenous human rights within Indigenous law and governance. How are Indigenous women’s rights also Indigenous human rights? Join leading scholars from across Canada in a thoughtful exploration facilitated by Chancellor Shelagh Rogers. 

Host: Shelagh Rogers (UVic Chancellor, Honorary Witness to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada and celebrated broadcast journalist).

Val Napoleon, Sarah Morales and Lana Lowe (Faculty of Law - Indigenous Law Program, UVic); and Tracey Lindberg (Faculty of Law, UOttawa)
