What Do You Consider Canada’s Most Important Human Rights Challenges?
Do you work for the defense of human rights in Canada? Within the framework of his fellowship project at the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation, “Opening up to the Americas in order to protect human rights and committing to reconciliation,” 2017 fellow Bernard Duhaime invites you to participate in a consultation phase by answering this online questionnaire. This is an opportunity for you to reflect on your accomplishments, your issues of concern, and the obstacles you face in your work for the defense of human rights in Canada. After this consultation phase, thematic workshops will be held in different cities across Canada. Ultimately, Duhaime’s project aims to set up a platform allowing Canadians to better understand, share, and put forward solutions for the protection of human rights in the Americas.
Bernard Duhaime is a 2017 Foundation fellow, a professor of international law at Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), and a specialist in the Inter-American System for the Protection of Human Rights. He is also a member and the vice-chair of the Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances. Access his online questionnaire here.
