Citizenship and Aboriginal self-government / by Joseph H. Carens.: Z1-1991/1-41-106E-PDF

“The primary goal of the paper is to explore how different ways of thinking about citizenship might influence our thinking about Aboriginal self-government and about the relationships between Aboriginal people and the people and governments in Canada with which they have some connection. At the same time, the paper explores how thinking about Aboriginal self-government might contribute to a reconceptualization of citizenship"--Executive summary, p. [3].
