2018 ActInCourts Workshop

On November 16, 2018, our emerging network of scholars and human rights NGO practitioners met at University of British Columbia for a one-day workshop on activists in international courts, to discuss research themes that connect us, and to identify research topics that would be valuable to
the practitioners and scholars alike. We identified themes and gaps in existing research, possible additional scholars and collaborators to invite into the network, and some next steps when moving forward. Below is a summarized overview of the discussion topics covered at our workshop meeting.

The 2018 workshop was scheduled closely with two other closely related UBC workshops, as part of a UBC President’s Research Excellence Cluster on Global Challenges to Democracy. A video highlighting these workshops is below.
