Spring 2024 Reading Group

Equality, Discrimination and Human Rights

Prerequisite: None

Exam Type: No Exam

One of the most defining features of a democracy is the way it accommodates differences. Canada and the United States have fundamentally different approaches to how this is done, leading to different visions of equality, discrimination and human rights. This reading course will explore the development and impact of the way equality has been defined in these 2 countries and what lessons can be learned from the jurisprudence that has emerged.

Note: This reading group will meet from January 30 to March 5, 2024.
