At an online high-level meeting organized by Colombia’s Constitutional Court, our Senior Research Fellow and Strategic Adviser on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights Dr Christophe Golay will present the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Peasants and Other People Living in Rural Areas (UNDROP) and its potential to protect the rights of peasants in the country.
Other speakers and participants include current and former Presidents of Colombia, as well as the judges of Colombia’s Constitutional Court.
This participation forms part of our work to ensure the UNDROP implementation on the ground by developing tools and guidance for various stakeholders, training relevant constituencies, raising awareness of decision-makers and focusing on specific rights enshrined in the Declaration.
‘It is a great opportunity to present our work on the rights of peasants at this high-level meeting. Exchanging with constitutional court judges, the current President and his predecessors about the rights of peasants and raising their awareness about the rights enshrined in the Declaration and their respective roles and responsibilities to protect them are key to ensure changes on the ground’ underlines Dr Golay.
Ten years after the entry into force of the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearances, The Work of the Committee on Enforced Disappearances takes stock of what the UN Committee on Enforced Disappearances has achieved and details its jurisprudence as it stands today.
In our new Working Paper The United Nations Treaty Bodies in a Transition Period – Progress Review, Professor Olivier de Frouville shares his own views on the work of UN treaty bodies during the period running from March to December 2020.
This online event – co-organized with UPR Info, OHCHR, and GANHRI – will discuss a new study commissioned by OHCHR on emerging good practices in UPR.
This book launch is part of our Human Rights Conversation series. It will discuss the book’s novel approach and content and the question of the domestic institutionalization of human rights.
