Highlighted projects demonstrate the breadth and depth of human rights research being conducted at the University of Manitoba. The University of Manitoba is committed to facilitating the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada and the CHRR has worked on projects to make good on this commitment. Other featured projects are interdisciplinary water rights research and research on sexual and reproductive rights.
The Centre for Human Rights Research Initiative (CHRR) has also partnered with the Trudeau Foundation and with the Canadian Museum for Human Rights on a research roundtable, Unfinished Business: Human Rights Issues in the 21st Century. These external partnerships promote collaboration and ensure that the U of M is at the forefront in developing research-based knowledge.

The CHRR successfully partnered with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, producing several significant projects for the National Event that took place in Winnipeg in June 2010, including a major academic conference, Prairie Perspectives on Indian Residential Schools, Truth and Reconciliation. These projects promoted truth-telling and seeking, healing and education for the thousands of attendees at the events. The remainder of the TRC’s National Events are being held across Canada over four years.
