The City as a “Space of Opportunity”

Urban Indigenous Experiences and Community Safety Partnerships

Author(s) : Vivien Carli, ICPC

 

The following paper The City as a “Space of Opportunity”: Urban Indigenous Experiences and Community Safety Partnerships was authored and presented on behalf of ICPC at the “Fostering Biimaadiziwin – National Research Conference on Urban Aboriginal Peoples”, February 23-24, 2011, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This paper, through a brief overview of a selected set of experiences of Indigenous peoples in cities, attempts to demonstrate a dichotomy—that while there are growing disparities faced by urban Indigenous peoples, there are emerging opportunities that aim to improve the standard of living, make cities safer, and enliven the urban setting for the benefit of Indigenous peoples.
