Andrew Woolford, ‘Transition and Transposition: Genocide, Land and the British Columbia Treaty Process’, New Proposals: Journal of Marxism and Interdisciplinary Inquiry 4, 2 (2011)

This paper situates the British Columbia Treaty Process within a brief discussion of the role of land in genocidal processes and transitional justice. It does so as a means to highlight the potential destructiveness of colonial land appropriation and the dangers of transitional justice processes that seek to forcibly transpose onto Indigenous persons the dispositions and practices of European property regimes.

KEYWORDS: Treaty making; land; transitional justice; transposition; genocide
