Haiti Workshop - May 2016
In May 2016, the Lab hosted a workshop on the right to water and gold mining in Haiti. Leading human rights practitioners and experts across the disciplines critiqued and provided advice on the research methods of a project to create a community-owned baseline for assessing the right to water in localities where gold mines are likely to be built.
Pilot Workshop - May 2015
In May 2015, the CHRGJ-HRW-HRI co-hosted a successful pilot workshop on the rights to water and sanitation in First Nations communities in Canada. The pilot brought together human rights advocates with experts from the natural sciences, sociology, anthropology, public health, architecture, and the law to examine and advise on specific research methods best suited to developing the evidence needed to advance the rights to water and sanitation.
