Between policy and aspiration: Has Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s flagship human rights policy been allowed to ‘wither on the vine’, or does it live on in another form?

On Thursday 28th November 2019, the Universal Rights Group will host a lunch discussion on the current status of the UN’s Human Rights Up Front Initiative. The event will also mark the publication of a new report by Universal Rights Group NYC.

The report details the development of HRuF from its birth to its current incarnation, seeks to understand the current status of the initiative and its objectives, and provides recommendations to the Secretary-General, States and civil society about reinforcing efforts to place human rights at the centre of the UN’s work, including in the context of prevention. The lunch policy dialogue will provide an opportunity to present the new policy report and delve further into some of the key recommendations and questions raised.
