Subject: RE: 70th Anniversary of UDHR
Please find attached a photo together with a list of speakers and topics we had yesterday for a slightly belated commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the UDHR. This was essentially internal - here at uOttawa/HRREC. It was a rich collegial exchange and shows the range of topics being addressed; the UDHR offered an impetus to get together and a thread which bound the various topics together (at least as a source of inspiration).
Please feel free to share this with the CAHRI network.
I look forward to following up in 2019 with a view to invigorating the CAHRI network!

Subject: RE: [HR-rsch] Forum on implementing UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples: Jan. 18-19
Could you please send an email to our network inquiring about events across Canada celebrating the 70th anniversary of the UDHR? When I lived in England, there were a number of momentous events to celebrate the 60th anniversary. It may be that organizations are waiting until the 75th, but thought I’d check and see.
I am not aware of any events happening in New Brunswick. The AHRC is not organizing an event, given that classes will be over and students are busy prepping for exams.
