Critical Indigenous Analysis of Social Welfare Policy

Units: 1.5

Critical analysis from an Indigenous perspective of social welfare policy. Students critically examine how capitalism, colonialism, race and class are embedded in social welfare policy. Examples of Indigenous policy development are also examined to explore the components of alternative visions of welfare. Students are expected to apply ideas and concepts from the policy literature to policy development in their own agency.
