BSIA's Dr. Andrew Thompson publishes new book on Human Rights

On the Side of Angels cover_0.jpgOn the Side of the Angels: Canada and the United Nations Commission on Human Rights is Dr. Andrew Thompson's latest book, published by UBC Press.

When it comes to upholding human rights both at home and abroad, many Canadians would like to believe that we 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 (CHR) from its creation in 1946 to its dissolution in 2006.
