Unsettling Colonialism in the Canadian Criminal Justice System

A revealing survey of ongoing settler colonialism in Canada’s criminal justice system.
This book argues that Canada’s criminal justice system continues to reinforce colonial power structures. Through mechanisms of surveillance, segregation, and containment, Canadian law enforcement deprives Indigenous peoples of economic stability, social inclusion, and political agency. Examining both overt and more insidious racist practices, contributors reveal the ongoing reinforcement of white-settler privilege and domination in Canada.
