Rights Review

Rights Review Header


In this issue, we explore ideas around wrongful discrimination and inequality, freedom of speech and freedom of the press, the right to housing in the pandemic, and corporate accountability for rights violations. This diversity of topics reveals the ongoing and immense human rights challenges we face in Canada and abroad, challenges that have long existed and are exacerbated by the global pandemic. This month also brings the first episode of Rights Review's podcast, highlighting our conversation with Professor Sophia Moreau on her book Faces of Inequality: A Theory of Wrongful Discrimination.
