In focus: domestic implementation of universal norms

A major thematic focus of the Group in its second biennium is domestic implementation of universal norms

Strengthening the on-the-ground domestic implementation and impact of international human rights obligations, commitments and recommendations is a key priority for URG’s second biennium. The URG will seek to strengthen universal human rights norms, improve the efficiency and effectiveness of international human rights institutions, and translate universal norms into the local human rights reality through better implementation.
