I’ve just completed an article on how a human-rights decision is arrived at in Canadian refugee law. I don’t think the article will interest all readers so I’ve made it a page rather than a post. To read the article please go to:
The relevance of the article is that human-rights decision makers follow a formal process to decide whether someone is a victim of human-rights persecution.
But that process can be followed by other people and may actually offer a way in to conducting ourselves in society in a manner that respects the human rights of others, a subject which will become increasingly important as we erase national boundaries and come together as a world community in the year ahead.
There’s no need for anyone to read the article to keep up with the baseline of current discussion.
