Human Rights Impact Assessment Tool

For Bank on Human Rights Coalition, Kimberly Inksater and Lloyd Lipsett lead the development of standards and indicators of an assessment tool designed for use by development finance institution and borrower country personnel in assessing ex-ante project impacts on human rights. The standards for the assessment are based on international human rights law, guiding principles, and best practice among development finance institutions across various issue areas such as indigenous peoples, land, health, labour, and poverty reduction. Two law students from the Faculty of Law at the University of Ottawa supported the research.
