After years of dreams and negotiations, the territory of Nunavut was established in Canada's Eastern and Central Arctic on April 1, 1999. Made in Nunavut provides the first comprehensive account of the planning that led to this remarkable achievement. The authors, leading authorities on the politics of the Canadian Arctic, pay particular attention to the Government of Nunavut's innovative organizational design - especially the decentralization of offices and functions (normally located in a capital) to communities across the territory. They explain how this new government was designed and implemented, and critically assess whether decentralization has delivered "better" government for Nunavut.
