INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS

Canadians are playing an increasingly visible role in assisting developing countries to improve the basic human rights of their citizens. Even in the direst of human rights disputes, such as cases of wrongful imprisonment or torture, mediation can still be a viable option.

Numerous International Conventions and Charters as well as domestic laws can be referred to when mediating human rights cases. The gravest violations may be referred to International Criminal Tribunals, such as ad hoc committees set up by the United Nations, or the permanent court recently established by the Treaty of Rome.

International agencies and governments frequently utilize mediators to settle disputes involving voting rights, gender and ethnic discrimination, minority empowerment, and equal access opportunity.

Aubrey has travelled extensively in the course of his practice and has carried out legal assignments in Africa, Europe and the Middle East.. He is keenly aware of the limitations of this area of mediation and is actively working to improve existing methods, and to augment his experience.

Human rights mediations employ local mediators where available and work within the existing political frameworks to give voice to the underprivileged. International agencies, both public and private, are called upon to assist where necessary. These disputes are often intractable and even modest and temporary solutions are considered victories.
