To mark Human Rights Day on December 10th, WFMC talked to Senator Marilou McPhedran about the challenges and opportunities that Canada faces regarding human rights.
The recording of the webinar is available on the WFMC website,along with previous webinars on peacekeeping and the International Criminal Court.
In addition to the discussion between Senator McPhedran and WFMC Membership and Communications Director Monique Cuillerier, there was a demonstration of the website of WFMC’s project on Canada’s Human Rights Commitments.
The Project on Canada’s Human Rights Commitments is a database of Canada’s international commitments regarding the major international human rights and humanitarian law treaties and other instruments. This website offers Canadians an accessible, all-in-one-place presentation, in English and French, of the body of international human rights and humanitarian instruments, as well as up to date information regarding the extent of Canadian participation respecting these instruments.
