Module assignments


The seminar is meant to be an introductory course into Canadian politics, history, and society. The Canadian federation is a very peculiar construct that was able to survive for 150 year despite its geographical size and demographic diversity. How was this country able to integrate visible minorities, Québécois and First Nations? How does the political system work? What are the founding principles the Canadian federation is based on? Those are only some questions we want to address in this seminar which takes place during the 150th anniversary of Canada.
