Faculty of Law and CHRLP end collaboration with Penny & Gordon Echenberg Family Foundation

The Faculty of Law of McGill University, its Centre for Human Rights and Legal Pluralism (CHRLP) as well as Gordon Echenberg and the Penny and Gordon Echenberg Family Foundation are ending their work together, following a meaningful collaboration that began in 2006. 

Over the past nine years, this collaboration has resulted in three Global Conferences, one Regional Conference in Rwanda, two published books, a DVD on genocide largely based on its 2007 conference, numerous working papers and a global community of young human rights specialists.

Young Leaders Forum 2015 cancelled

The Faculty of Law of McGill University, its Centre for Human Rights and Legal Pluralism (CHRLP) as well as Gordon Echenberg and the Penny and Gordon Echenberg Family Foundation are sad to announce that the Young Leaders Forum 2015 has been cancelled. 

We would like to thank each of the more than 1,300 individuals who sent us an application – the Centre reviewed every one and we were inspired by the work that is being done in human rights around the world. We apologize for the inconvenience caused to individual applicants and thank you for your interest in this initiative.
