From Aspiration to Action: A Human Rights Framework for the Post-2015 Development Agenda
24 Sep 2013 -  A high-level side event on Human Rights and the Post-2015 Development Agenda will focus on the innovative and practical human rights recommendations emerging through the recent Post-2015 consultations. It will also reflect on how these could be used to assist Member States in the inter-governmental negotiations on the Post-2015 development agenda. The call to place human rights at the center of the Post-2015 agenda has been at the forefront of the global discussion from its inception, and is reflected prominently in its successive milestones, including the recent Post-2015 global thematic and national consultations. The UN Human Rights Office’s engagement in the Post-2015 debate has focused squarely on the vision of a new, universal development paradigm, in which all human rights, including the right to development, are fully integrated, with the objective of ensuring both freedom from fear and freedom from want for all, without discrimination. Speakers: Mr. Ivan Šimonović, Assistant Secretary-General, Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights; H.E. Ms. Patrizianna Sparacino, Ambassador for Human Rights, France; H.E. Mr. Mohamed Khaled Khiari, Permanent Representative of Tunisia to the UN; Mr. Roberto Bissio, Coordinator of Social Watch; and Ms. Saraswathi Menon, Director of Policy Division, UN Women and Co-Chair of the UN Development Group Human Rights Mainstreaming Mechanism. [Meeting organized by the UN Human Rights Office and sponsored by the Governments of France and Tunisia]
