The Canadian Council on International Law (CCIL) in collaboration with the Canadian Association of International Development Professionals (CAIDP) is organizing a joint event, on Gender equality, inclusive governance and the law on January 23rd 2018 in Ottawa.
In mid-2017, Canada announced its new foreign policy priorities in diplomacy and defence, in trade and in international development. Together these policies set out Canada's international position. It is therefore an opportune time for practitioners from our two constituencies to become attuned to the policy and programming developments and to take advantage of the participation of Global Affairs Canada and international representatives to enhance dialogue around these issues.
CAIDP and CCIL are pleased to bring together policy makers, international law and development practitioners, and academics to hear the latest, discuss implications and make professional connections. Our collaboration is a first for the two constituencies. It emerges from our common interest in Canadian foreign policy and shared understanding of the importance of governance and the rule of law.
Cost to attend: $60 for CCIL Attendees to attend the day of January 23, 2018
