Rights Review is back and proud to present our first issue for the 2021-2022 academic year!

This issue features a statement from the Editorial Board on the decision of the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) to pause the censure imposed against the University of Toronto in response to the IHRP scandal. Ainslie Pierrynowski (3L) trains a legal lens on the urgent push for global vaccine equity. Martha Côté (2L) advances an argument for a human-rights based approach to abortion laws in light of recent battles for reproductive rights. Finally, Amirali Alavi (3L JD/MBA) sets out the path to justice for victims of the downing of Flight PS752.
