Chair/Président/Présidente : Peter Russell (University of Toronto)

Reconciliation became a prominent political theme following the release of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s report on Canada’s residential school policy for Indigenous students. The objective of reconciliation has generally been taken to heal wounds, change behaviours, and create the conditions for good relationships. Participants in this Roundtable will take up a number of themes relating to problematic of reconciliation in the political and economic conditions in which we live.
