In 2009, the Trustees of the National Association of Women and the Law Charitable Trust for Research and Education announced the first recipients of NAWL’s policy research grants project. Four grants were provided to support the work of feminist researchers to prepare educational papers on legal issues that affect women, whose interests are often excluded from public policy discussions.
The papers were written in 2010. Where available, abstracts are provided below.
- Mary Eberts – Customary Law and Women’s Rights
- Constance Macintosh – Intimate Violence, Fundamental Human Rights and Gendered Persecution. Do the Guidelines Make the Link?
- Adrian Smith/Dayna Scott –Social Reproduction and Temporary Labour Migration to Canada
- Susan Strega – The Motherload of Blame: Failure to protect policies in Canadian child welfare law and policy
