Bots at the Gate

This is the final issue of Rights Review for the 2019-2020 academic year! It features an update on the Bots at the Gate report, which highlighted the human rights implications of automated decision making in Canada's immigration and refugee system. This issue also features a compelling article on the importance of recognizing sexual violence as genocide, and an event highlight on the recent Canadian Media Freedom Symposium co-hosted by the Asper Centre and the IHRP.
