Discrimination Research

Throughout his professional career Bryant has been at the forefront of discrimination research, having designed methodologies and tools to both confirm and address discrimination, with the following entities:

At the Ontario Human Rights Commission, Bryant developed methodological tools for a report on the child welfare system in Ontario, and the experiences of Indigenous and Black, children and youth;

At the Center for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation in South Africa, Bryant developed a civil society prosecution policy, to address obstacles to State prosecutions, for Apartheid era crimes, and also designed and created assessment tools and metrics for ex-combatant mediation programs;

At the Department of National Treasury, in South Africa, Bryant was part of an inter-departmental team that developed metrics and targeted outcomes, for a national anti-rape strategy. Also, at the National Treasury Bryant provided policy advice on the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s (TRC) community rehabilitation program;

And, at the University of Cape Town, Faculty of Law, in South Africa, Bryant completed his Doctorate in Law (PhD) by reviewing the discriminatory application of criminal compensation provisions, for victims of sexual violence, in South Africa. Also problems with customary law were also identified including improper forfeiture of lobola/bride-wealth, steep costs associated with cleansing ceremonies, and payment of customary damages to male relatives rather than assisting with costs associated with the post-assault recovery of the victim.
