Coordinating Performance in International Trade and Human Rights

October 26, 2017 Vancouver, BC

The Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada is co-hosting with the University of British Columbia (UBC) a roundtable to generate a discussion about policy implications of recent research results from UBC’s Asia Pacific Dispute Resolution (APDR) Program.

This is part of a series of research and knowledge mobilization activities, which includes a series of international consultations to share and receive feedback on the research findings and analysis. These consultations will provide opportunities to discuss results from UBC's seven-year policy research program on co-ordination of international treaty compliance in trade and human rights, and resulting policy implications. 

Supported by the Major Collaborative Research Initiative (MCRI) program of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), the APDR project has brought together researchers from Canada, Japan, China, India, Indonesia, Australia, and Israel to examine relationships between international trade policy and human rights performance.

Following summary presentations on research results linking trade policy with human rights themes of development; poverty/inequality; health rights; labour relations; and, government accountability, participants will discuss policy implications and responses.

By Invitation Only
