Title: Deal? Or No Deal? Explaining Comprehensive Land Claims Negotiation Outcomes in Canada
Authors: Alcantara, Christopher

Keywords: Political Science
Issue Date: 26-Feb-2009
Abstract: In 1973, the Canadian government created the federal comprehensive land claims process to negotiate modern treaties with Aboriginal peoples in Canada. Despite 35 years of negotiations, many Aboriginal groups have failed to complete modern treaties. This dissertation explains why some Aboriginal groups have been able to complete modern treaties and why some have not. After examining four sets of negotiations in Newfoundland and Labrador and the Yukon Territory, I argue that scholars need to pay greater attention to the institutional framework governing treaty negotiations and to a number of factors relative to the Aboriginal groups.
