Panel discussion on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Human Rights Council
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.
