Bernard Duhaime: The Inter-American Human Rights System

Our 2017 Fellow Bernard Duhaime has published an article in the Quebec Journal of International Law. The article gives ten reasons why Canada should adhere to the American convention for human rights.


Bernard Duhaime is a professor of international law at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) and a specialist in the Inter-American System for the Protection of Human Rights.

In addition, the recently released book Doctrine, Practice, and Advocacy in the Inter-American Human Rights System, co-authored by Professor Duhaime, is the first casebook to focus on the Inter-American human rights system, the primary system for advancing and protecting rights in the Western hemisphere.
