Summer School on the Arts and Human Rights (AHR) at the University of Ottawa

The Human Rights Research and Education Centre (HRREC) offers this summer, from June 20 to 24, the First Edition of the Summer School on the Arts and Human Rights (AHR)! The goal of this course is to explore issues around the Art as a manifestation of human rights and as an instrument for the promotion of human rights. The course is open to students (for credit or not) as well as academics, government employees, NGO and IO staff, indigenous and community representatives, artists, activists and cultural workers. Each year, the summer school will focus in a particular theme. For the first edition, the theme will be Indigenous Arts and Culture.

Speaker: Romeo SAGANASH | Member of Parliament (Abitibi – Baie-James – Nunavik – Eeyou), Critic for Intergovernmental Aboriginal Affairs and Critic for Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency.

On April 21, the NDP’s critic for Intergovernmental Indigenous Affairs, Romeo Saganash tabled legislation to ensure that the laws of Canada respect the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. MP Saganash spent 23 years at the United Nations negotiating the Declaration which was endorsed by Canada in 2010. This is the second time that Saganash has tabled a bill of this nature: in the previous Parliament, his bill was fully endorsed by his party. The Liberals and Greens also voted in favour. The Prime Minister has stipulated that implementation of the UN Declaration is a priority for his government.
