The University of Guelph College of Social and Applied Human Sciences is hosting a 4 month- $25,000 USD Fulbright Canada Research Chair during the 2022-23 academic year.
Consistent with our commitment to reconciliation and the indigenization of the University, this research chair will examine the experience of Indigenous persons with the Canadian legal system, with a particular focus on criminal justice policy, as well as the examination of Indigenous legal systems as alternatives to western legal systems.
Areas of potential research include legal dimensions of self-government, overrepresentation of Indigenous persons in prisons, the experience of Indigenous persons in court, Indigenous judicial processes, the representation of Indigenous persons in the legal profession and on the bench, alternative sentencing remedies, and indigenous law and legal systems.
We welcome scholars who study these issues from either a national or comparative perspective.
The deadline to apply is Sept. 15, 2021.
