CCIL Webinar: Humphrey Fellows Panel - Friday April 26, 2024

This panel will showcase works in progress from the Humphrey Fellows of the Canadian Council on International Law (CCIL), whose research was made possible by the Humphrey Scholarship. The John Peters Humphrey Student Fellowships in International Human Rights Law or International Organization are the result of a bequest to CCIL by the late John Peters Humphrey, a renowned Canadian international lawyer and scholar.

It is the first webinar panel composed exclusively of Humphrey Fellowship recipients (past and present scholars, each from different cohorts). The Humphrey Fellowship creates a dynamic network of young scholars. In this panel, they will explore key aspects of international human rights law, highlighting potential ways to put international law “back on track”. They discuss and examine multiple facets of human rights violations and propose solutions to these grave problems. Topics range from state intervention and use of force, to humanitarian conflict and the plight of refugees, to reconciliation and transitional justice. The Humphrey Fellows engage individually and as a group on the complexities generated by the overlap of different fields of international law, including the rights and resilience of racialized groups, decolonization, refugee law, humanitarian law, state intervention and environmental law. The presentations from the Humphrey Scholars will be followed by Q&A from the audience.

The panel will be chaired by Penelope Simons, Professor and Gordon F. Henderson Chair in Human Rights, Faculty of Law, University of Ottawa.
