For anyone interested in the issue of corruption, access to justice, collective action, how gender plays out in corrupt systems and/or systems thinking, I was fortunate enough to be granted a slot on the CAIDP conference next week to talk about our corruption in fragile states work – Monday @ 12.15
"I am thrilled to see this collaborative initiative between CAIDP and CCIL!!!
Indeed, it was the potential of the use of law as an instrument for international development that had inspired me to go to law school. The need for a cross-sectoral approach, with gender as a cross-cutting theme, is critically important to the work of both organizations and I hope this initiative will grow into an ongoing partnership for the furtherance of Canada’s contributions towards “A Better World.” "
We explore this question, amongst others, at CAIDP’s 2018 conference, Gender Equality, Inclusive Governance and the Law: Aligned for a Better World – Jan 22nd and 23rd in Ottawa. In the lead up, we have asked Canadian thought leaders to weigh in on what’s in the name. Here, we ask Paul LaRose-Edwards to tell us what he is thinking about.
