Professor Lucie Lamarche’s latest publication, entitled Droit de cité pour les droits économiques, sociaux et culturels : La Charte québécoise en chantier , was co-edited with colleague Pierre Bosset, from the University du Quebec à Montreal.. With over thirteen essays by eminent jurists, this book is an additional contribution to elucidating a Quebec doctrine on human rights.
“This book follows the report produced by the Quebec Commission of Human Rights published in 2003, Après 25 ans : la Charte québécoise des droits et libertés. “While we are still waiting for the government’s response, eight years after the Report, we tried to lay the foundations for a critical analysis, ” states Prof. Lamarche.
The book includes contributions from University of Ottawa professors David Robitaille and Sylvie Paquerot, both members of the HRREC.
“If one accepts that social rights were the orphans of the Quebec Charter, nevertheless we now need to be more sensitive towards cultural rights. These should now receive more attention, ” concludes the director of the Centre.
