Summary
"When it comes to upholding human rights both at home and abroad, many Canadians believe that have always been "on the side of the angels." This book tells the story of Canada's contributions--both good and bad--to the development and advancement of international human rights law at the Commission on Human Rights from 1946 to 2006. In it, Canada's reputation is examined through its involvement in a number of contentious human rights issues--political, civil, racial, women's, and Indigenous. An in-depth historical overview of six decades of Canadian engagement within the UN human rights system, this book offers new insights into the nuances, complexities, and contradictions of Canada's human rights policies."--
