Abstract

In October 2017, we co-hosted a conference and policy meeting on the subject of extractive industries and the human rights of women and girls, at the Human Rights Resource Education Centre in Ottawa. This submission will reflect on some of the insights that emerged from the conference and policy meeting, as well as our own subsequent research. A selection of conference papers are forthcoming in a special issue of the Canadian Journal of Women and the Law. We have inserted our submissions in response to some of the specific questions raised by the Working Group.
