Launch online of the National Security Observatory
The International Commission of Jurists (Canadian Section) is happy to announce the launch of a new bilingual online resource relating to the theme of the rule of law and the protection of human rights: the “Observatory on National Security Measures” (Observatoire des mesures visant la sécurité nationale or OSN), housed in the Faculty of Law of the University of Montreal. It is an initiative of the Quebec chapter of ICJ Canada, in collaboration with the Public Law Research Centre of the University of Montreal. Professor Stéphane Beaulac, Ph.D. (Cantab.), full professor at the University of Montreal, is the founding director of the project. The Observatory consists of a platform for research on and diffusion of legislation, Parliamentary Bills, government directives and other official documents relating to national security measures (eg. Bill C-51). It will also permit different interveners to come together and share opinions and commentary on national security, notably on the blog portion of the site.
