Revitalizing Canada’s Indigenous Constitution

In Canada, implementation of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) is an opportunity to explore and re-examine the relationship between international law, Indigenous peoples’ own laws and Canada’s constitutional narratives.

In this video, CIGI Senior Fellow John Borrows explains that Canada is ideally situated to fully and appropriately implement UNDRIP because of the country’s commitment to reconciliation, which, at its heart, is a commitment to bringing together different world views.
