Nadine Fabbi, managing director of the Canadian Studies Center, has co-authored a chapter in “The Inuit World” published by Routledge Press in November. The chapter, titled, “Inuit Nunangat: The Development of a Common Inuit Territorial and Policy Space in Canada,” was co-written with Gary Wilson, University of Northern British Columbia.
It examines the emergence of Inuit Nunangat (“homeland”) and the steps Inuit have taken to establish a national presence in Canada, the rise of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami [ITK, the national Inuit organization], the unique methodology of Inuit land use and occupancy and how ITK is represented at the federal level, its success in establishing government-to-government relations, and how this supports and advances the notion of Inuit Nunangat.
The front cover of the book is a print titled “Beyond the Storm” and designed by an Inuk artist, Saila.
Fabbi co-leads the Arctic and International Relations Initiative with the Jackson School’s International Policy Institute, which launched in 2015 with support from Carnegie Corporation of New York.
