A Century of Citizenship in Australia and in Canada

From 8-10 February 2001, the Forum of Federations, in collaboration with the Australian High Commission and the Institute of Canadian Studies at the University of Ottawa, hosted a three-day conference on the past, present, and future of citizenship in Australia and in Canada. Papers examined the passage from the status of ‘subject’ to that of ‘citizen’, and addressed the relationship between citizenship and civil society, aboriginal governance, political participation and institutional representation as well as the culture and politics of citizenship. The event was part of the Centenary celebrations of the Australian Federation.
