The Americas and Human Rights
The Human Rights Research and Education Centre (HRREC) is fortunate to host several researchers and graduate students with deep expertise in the Americas region. The Centre believes in applying the same degree of attention to human rights issues in Canada and abroad and seeks to contribute to the enjoyment of human rights throughout the continent.
Notable activities include a series of webinars on “Justice, the Rule of Law and Human Rights in Latin America: Internal and External Perspectives” organized in 2013 and an International Symposium entitled “Current Views on the Rule of Law, Transitional and Alternative Justice in Latin America: Shared Experiences" hosted at the University of Ottawa in 2014.
The Centre has also organized a series of events and published policy papers on the Human Rights Situation in Venezuela.
