Roundtable on Human Rights Impact Assessments - November 16

October 28, 2010

Held on November 16th, 2010 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m., University of Ottawa, Human Rights Research and Education Centre, Fauteux Hall (FTX 550), 57 Louis Pasteur Pvt.

The triple global crises of food, climate and finance have heightened public scrutiny of the international economic order. There is a growing interest to assess the social and human rights implications of trade and investment policies and agreements, including through the use of human rights impact assessments (HRIAs). In June 2010, an international expert seminar was held in Geneva to advance thinking, principles and methodologies for HRIAs for trade and investment agreements. The seminar was an international collaboration among CSOs, UN experts and academics and convened under the auspices of Olivier De Schutter, UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food.

This upcoming roundtable will discuss the outcomes and reflections of the Expert Seminar and prompt discussion among participants of the opportunities for such work in Canada, given recent demands for HRIAs in the context of Canada’s trade relations.

The roundtable is co-hosted by the Canadian Council for International Co-operation and the University of Ottawa Human Rights Research and Education Centre.

Space is limited. Please RSVP to Ginette Châtelain
