Parkland Institute

http://www.ualberta.ca/~parkland/

The Parkland Institute is a non-partisan research centre situated within the Faculty of Arts at the University of Alberta. Adopting a political economy perspective, the Institute studies economic, social, cultural, and political issues facing Albertans and Canadians. The Parkland Institute draws on many academic disciplines, in addition to a number of organizations in the broader community that includes professionals, trade unionists, feminists, social movement activists, and others. Its mission is to examine market-oriented assumptions, arguments, and policies to determine whether or not they are justified.

The Institute’s research is based on three broad themes: revitalizing democracy and the role of government, building a just and sustainable economy, and improving the quality of life for Albertans and all Canadians. The Institute’s areas of research exploration include education, energy, health, the media, poverty, and rural issues. In addition to its research activities, the Institute publishes the Parkland Post, and also organizes conferences and speakers’ series.
