The Committee on Enforced Disappearances, the Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances, and the International Coalition against Enforced Disappearances, with the support of the Geneva Human Rights Platform, are convening a webinar on sharing experiences and outcomes of actions taken to promote the ratification of the International Convention for the Protection of all Persons from Enforced Disappearances and the recognition of the full competence of the Committee.
This event will take stock of the actions carried out to promote the ratification of the Convention and share experiences and practices from the perspective of States representatives, civil society organizations, National Human Rights Institutions and UN experts.
The aim is to promote direct contact and information sharing between involved actors to further strengthen strategies and identify actions to be taken.
This event will take place online on the platform Zoom.
With more than 400 registered participants – both online and in Geneva – the Annual Conference brought all the relevant stakeholders in the discussions around this topical human rights issue.
This monthly newsletter will keep our audience informed about the activities of the platform, upcoming events and key human rights discussions in Geneva and beyond.
This short course, which can be followed in Geneva or online, analyses the main international and regional norms governing the international protection of refugees. It notably examines the sources of international refugee law, including the 1951 Geneva Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, and their interaction with human rights law and international humanitarian law.
Through frontal lectures, complemented by interactive activities as case-studies and dialogues with practitioners, this online short course will provide a proper understanding of the rationale, structure and content of international law rules addressing the prevention, preparedness, response and recovery in the event of disasters and assess their impact for humanitarian actors, International Organisations and domestic stakeholders.
This project aims at providing support to the UN Special Rapporteur on the Rights to Freedom of Peaceful Assembly and of Association Clément Voulé by addressing emerging issues affecting civic space and eveloping tools and materials allowing various stakeholders to promote and defend civic space.
