At a time when democratic norms are under attack elsewhere, Canada has a unique opportunity to set the global standard for human rights practice and policy by reforming and refining Canada’s human rights sanctions framework, which can serve as an example to the world.

Amid a global resurgence of authoritarianism — underpinned by an assault on the rules-based international order — such meaningful measures are as timely as they are necessary, and could catalyze compelling and comprehensive human rights reforms in other countries. Indeed, it would ensure that these efforts are well-grounded and guided by best practices, particularly as allied countries and economies, including Australia, Germany, and even the European Union as a whole, consider the adoption of such sanctions frameworks.
