Panel discussion on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Human Rights Council
15 Mar 2016 -  Panel discussion on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Human Rights Council.
"Are Human Rights under Assault? Massive human rights violations, violent extremism, and shrinking democratic space in a troubled world."
As the Human Rights Council marks its 10th anniversary, this panel is an initial event in a series of activities aimed at marking this symbolic moment. The panel discussion aims to stress how the UN human rights architecture (of which the Human Rights Council is a central actor) provides some of the elements needed to respond to the challenges in a complex world. It should also help Member States better understand the importance of human rights standard-setting in Geneva, mainstreaming in New York and operations in the field.
