And our Annual General Meetings have crept up the calendar since
then. While April started as the month for our AGM, the last few years
they’ve been in June. This year we have some personnel changes, and
the opportunity for a reset. Our AGM will be held on our Discussion

place a note on the dashboard of your vehicle: Meeting in Community
Room re Apt 107 from 7-9pm

Important business will the election of the Executive. Our current
Treasurer, Cathy Scott will be taking over the Chapter Co-ordinator
duties, and so we need to fill the position of Treasurer. This is the
main reason for calling the AGM now.

Inclusive Trade: Justice, Innovation or More of the Same?
Apr 24 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Photo credit: Pexels
The notion of “inclusive trade” has taken hold in the policies of many national governments – Canada, Chile and New Zealand most prominent among them – and in the work of international organizations, including the World Trade Organization and the OECD. All inclusive trade policies focus on women, and small and medium-sized enterprises. Some also focus on Indigenous peoples, as well as issues like investor-state dispute settlement. Does inclusive trade deliver anything new to those groups that have not typically been included in conversations about trade? Dr. Patricia Goff argues two things in answer to this question. First, grounded in Nancy Fraser’s three justice idioms, Dr. Goff argues that inclusive trade may not always deliver economic gain (or mitigate economic loss). In Fraser’s terms, an inclusive trade strategy may not provide for ‘redistribution,’ but it can offer important opportunities for ‘recognition’ and ‘representation.’ Second, drawing on the debate about positive and negative integration, Dr. Goff argues that the inclusive trade agenda has the potential to be a qualitatively different way of developing trade policy by seeking to incorporate compensatory adjustment strategies for those who might suffer dislocation from trade liberalization directly into trade agreements. Ultimately, the inclusive trade agenda is an important strand in the debate about trade justice.

Palestinian Refugees From Syria: A New Displacement Away From Home
Apr 25 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Photo credit: Henry Ridgwell/Creative Commons License
Palestinian statelessness is one of the world’s most persistent refugee crises; it goes back to 1948 when more than 750,000 Palestinians were displaced from Palestine as a result of the establishment of the state of Israel. Today more than half a million Palestinian refugees, who have resided in Syria since 1948, are reliving the trauma of their statelessness through the current Syrian conflict. The social marginalization and legal preciousness of Palestinian stateless refugees during the Syrian conflict are, in fact, examples of the limitations of the international refugee protection system which allow the exclusion of millions of refugees as they do not fit within its legal frameworks. Palestinians were never protected by the international protection regime as they have been subject to a set of legal structures that prevent them from officially accessing international refugee protection. Yet, during the current Syrian conflict, this group of refugees has experienced multiple layers of discrimination and rejections that push them to seek refuge in other destinations through life-threatening journeys. This talk addresses the particular predicament of Palestinian refugees from Syria, a predicament that powerfully reveals the political nature of the legal framework that governs stateless Palestinians.
About the speaker
Maissaa Almustafa recently defended her dissertation “Refugees from Syria Caught Between War and Borders: A Journey Towards Protection“.

Cinema Series and Panel Discussion: ‘Netizens’ @ CIGI
Apr 30 @ 7:00 pm

About ‘Netizens

Netizens delves into the lives of three women whose lives have been transformed by online harassment: Carrie Goldberg, an attorney who launches an internet privacy and sexual assault law firm in the wake of her own cyber harassment; Tina Reine, a successful businesswoman whose career is derailed after an ex-boyfriend creates numerous reputation-harming websites; and Anita Sarkeesian, the creator of a popular web-series, “Feminist Frequency,” critiquing representations of women in video games, who is the target of a cyber-mob’s ongoing campaign of rape and death threats.

Through an intimate, vérité approach, Netizens depicts the many forms digital abuse can take: non-consensual pornography, cyber-stalking, threats of violence, privacy invasions, impersonation, character attacks. The film challenges the notion cyber harassment is “only” online, showing the repercussions on targets’ lives: lost jobs, thwarted educations, damaged reputations, offline harassment and stalking, and countless hours devoted to containing attacks against a backdrop of mounting legal fees and psychological distress. While law enforcement lags far behind the crimes, the film’s subjects seek justice on their own terms. Carrie’s law firm takes off in the midst of the #MeToo movement; Tina speaks out about her experiences and breaks back into the finance industry; and Anita creates a new series about race, gender and inequality in America. NETIZENS bears witness as a courageous wave of individuals transform the web as we know it.

About the Panel

Following the film, a panel discussion will take place featuring local experts, discussing both issues raised in the film and other intersections of safety and technology, gender, consent and the law.

Content Warning: The film and the panel following will include frank and explicit discussion of online harrasment, and other forms of digital abuse and threatening behaviour.
 

About the Cinema Series

The Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI), is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Grand River Film Festival, and THEMUSEUM to deliver public film screening events throughout the year.

For April’s Cinema Series event, we are pleased to be working with the following community organizations to host a screening of the 2018 film ‘Netizens’ followed by an expert panel. We would like to extend our thanks to the following for their help and support: Community Justice Initiatives Waterloo Region, Kitchener Waterloo Community Foundation, Pat the Dog Theatre Creation, Power Shift WR and SHORE Centre.

HEALTHY YARDS: IDEA SPARK 101 | RAIN COACH @ REEP Green Solutions House
May 1 @ 7:00 pm

These workshops will give you an introduction to designing beautiful, functional, and healthy yards that are rain smart and beneficial to nature and people alike. These workshops will focus on rain smart techniques and the best places to integrate them into your outdoor space, including:

  • rain gardens
  • naturalized landscaping
  • infiltration galleries
  • rainwater harvesting
  • permeable pavement
  • other aspects of healthy yards, such as attracting bees and butterflies

WORKSHOP # 1: HEALTHY YARDS 101 | IDEA SPARK

  • Presentation: 7:00 p.m.
  • Design Exercise: 7:20 – 9:00 p.m.

We will printout an aerial map of your property in advance. After a brief overview, you will be guided through the process of analyzing your property to determine what healthy yard features would work best for your space and lifestyle. We will sketch out your ideas to give you a sense of the size and scope of your project(s).

You will leave the workshop with a basic plan for your yard and additional resources to help implement your healthy yard project. The design sketch can help to facilitate discussion with a contractor or form the basis of the plan to do it yourself. If you want help developing a more detailed plan, register for the next workshop in the series Healthy Yards: Designing Your Garden.

Workshop # 2: Healthy Yards 201 | Planning

Presentation: 7:00 p.m.
Design Exercise: 7:20 – 9:00 p.m.

This workshop is perfect for Do-it-Yourselfers who have an early-stage plan for their healthy yard and desire additional design support to fulfill their vision. We will build upon the concepts and principles learned in Healthy Yards: Idea Spark & Planning and guide you through a more detailed design for your healthy yard project.
The workshop will specifically focus on project planning and planting design for rain gardens and naturalized landscapes, including topics such as:

planting for year round interest
the best plants for rain gardens
materials calculations (i.e. compost, sand, mulch)

Participants will learn how to develop a design for a part (or all) of their yard and create a shopping list for plants and related materials required to implement the project successfully.
Come with a specific gardening project in mind, including its rough size and location. This could possibly be developed during the Healthy Yards: Idea Spark & Planning workshop. We will develop a more detailed drawing of your garden during the workshop to effectively determine the number of plants and other materials you will require, so knowledge of the dimensions, sun exposure, and soil conditions (wet, dry, or moist or sand, silt or clay) will be helpful.
