Dr. Henri Pallard is the Director of the International Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Law and Professor emeritus in the Department of Law and Justice, Laurentian University, Sudbury (Ontario), Canada. He is broadly interested in the relationship between culture and human rights as it manifests itself in both western and non western cultures. From 1994 to 2005, he was the Director of Persons, Culture and Rights (Personne, culture et droits), an international North/South research team which was funded by the International Francophone University (Agence universitaire de la Francophonie). During this period, he worked closely with researchers and academics from Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt distilling the cultural issues underlying the interpretation and implementation of human rights, the rule of law and democracy in North Africa. From 2010 to 2016, he was the Associate Director, Poverty, Homelessness and Migration, at Laurentian University, which received a $1 million grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). Working in partnership with First Nations and northern communities, this five-year project examined the underlying causes of poverty, poor housing, homelessness, and out-migration in northern Ontario. For its outstanding work under its Director of SSHRC, it received the SSRHC Impact Partnership Award. In 2003, Dr. Henri Pallard was invited to present the Vice-President’s Lecture. In 2008, he was awarded the Laurentian University Research Excellence Award in recognition of his work internationally which contributed significantly to the reputation and prestige of the university.

This award is the most prestigious honour that the Saint-Jean Campus, University of Alberta, bestows upon one alumnus each year in recognition for demonstrating leadership in her/his profession. In 2022, he received the Order of Merit of the AJEFO (Franco-Ontarian Association of Jurists) for his contribution to Francophone access to justice.
