The Centre is actively building upon its first decade and expanding its program, both domestically and internationally. The commitment to service and collaboration in our research and education programming is demonstrated in our working links with the Faculty of Law (Civil and Common Law Sections), with the Women's Studies Program and several other Faculties at the University of Ottawa; the Parliamentary Centre; World University Service Canada (WUSC); the Institute on Governance (IOG); the Centre for Trade Policy and Law; the Norman Patterson School of International Affairs; the Canadian Human Rights Commission; the Departments of Justice, Canadian Heritage, Foreign Affairs and International Trade, and the Canadian International Development Agency.


The Human Rights Research and Education Centre has been delivering an active and extensive program out of the University of Ottawa, Canada, since May 1981. The Centre was the brainchild of Canada's former Ambassador to the United Nations, the distinguished Yvon Beaulne. Supporting his proposal to the Rector was Gordon Fairweather, then the Chief Commissioner of the Canadian Human Rights Commission.
