"Canada can, within a positive friendly atmosphere, ask the Chinese government to resolve the Tibetan situation."

WORKSHOP: The Canada China Free Trade Agreement

Thursday, March 22, 2018

Do human rights matter?

Workshop participants will look at the Canada-China Free Trade Agreement through a human rights lens, with attention to Tibet as a case example. The discussion will consider how increased trade between Canada and China could potentially affect the human rights of Tibetans. Speakers will propose possible responses to those impacts.

A draft discussion paper is provided as background for the workshop at this link.
