Abstract

This submission summarizes the findings to date from a body of empirical research that has endeavored to identify the human rights impacts of Canada's economic diplomacy policy. With this context, it reviews Canada's existing policy framework as it applies to economic diplomacy in order to identify the gaps in existing policy from an international human rights law perspective. This research and analysis forms the basis for two recommendations.
