Although not specific to HIV/AIDS, Viviane Namaste was instrumental in developing the legal brief submitted to the Supreme Court of Canada on a case related to the criminalization of prostitution. The brief was submitted by the Simone de Beauvoir Institute, which is the Department of Women’s Studies at Concordia University where Viviane Namaste is also a Full Professor. The Simone de Beauvoir Institute was represented by attorney Walid Hijazi. This information is included here because it provides a useful point of entry to understand some of the legal and policy work related to this Research Chair in HIV/AIDS and Sexual Health.
