Human Rights Clinic Open House

Since September 2014, the Human Rights Research and Education Centre (HRREC) runs a Human Rights Clinic and invites graduate and undergraduate students to develop their knowledge and acquire new skills in relation to projects in Canada and abroad.

The Human Rights Clinic is a project-based initiative that, under the academic guidance of faculty members from the University of Ottawa, aims:

  • To strengthen the protection of human rights, by promoting advocacy, research, training and technical assistance emphasizing their effective implementation.
  • To foster capacity-building and to provide recommendations to ensure that policy and law have a human rights-based approach.
  • To promote research regarding the implementation of human rights standards in Canada and abroad.
