Organized by the Geneva Human Rights Platform in co-operation with TB-Net, IWRAW Asia Pacific and GQUAL, this online event will provide an opportunity to the nominated candidates to present themselves in an informal venue open to State representatives and civil society, addressing their candidacy in view of the requirements set out for membership by the treaty and relevant official documents. The event will also allow them to reply to questions shared beforehand by civil society representatives.
