Record #131416:

Les systèmes judiciaires au Nunavut et au Groenland / Pierre Rousseau.

Title: Les systèmes judiciaires au Nunavut et au Groenland / Pierre Rousseau.
Translated title: The judicial systems in Nunavut and Greenland.
Author(s): Rousseau, Pierre.
Date: 1994.
In: Études Inuit = Inuit Studies. (1994.), Vol. 18(1-2) (1994)
Abstract: Greenland adapted justice system in early 1950s to majority aboriginal people. Canada has imposed its own system on Inuit in North Canada, so systems may be compared. Crimes have almost same definition, but court processes and sentences tend more to try to re-socialize offender in Greenland, while more to punish in Canada. Following Danish experience, it is claimed that Canadian system could be adapted, with use of Inuit customary law. Greenland system is not perfect, but is good example of adaptation.
Notes:
