Pre-Glion III policy dialogue with the Permanent Mission of Thailand: How the international community strengthen and support implementation/compliance

Ahead of Glion III, the Universal Rights Group (URG), with a number of supportive State delegations in Geneva, will organise a series of informal policy dialogues, designed to allow early consideration and exchange on different aspects of ‘human rights implementation and compliance.’

The first such policy dialogue took place on 17th February, with the support of the Permanent Mission of Thailand. The dialogue focused on ‘International community support for domestic implementation: from Item 10 to the UNDG Human Rights Working Group.’ Discussion centred on four key areas:

    1. Upstream I – Supporting compliance by improving the quality, clustering, management and communication of UN human rights recommendations and concluding observations. (Case study: UPR third cycle)
    2. Upstream II – International follow-up: is the UN human rights system able to accurately monitor and measure implementation and compliance? What is the current state-of-play and what reforms are needed?
    3. Upstream III – Critical analysis of item 10 – how can the Council and its mechanisms better deliver effective capacity-building and technical support to help States strengthen local implementation?
    4. Upstream IV– International support for implementation – UNDG Human Rights Working Group, Change Initiative, the role of donors.
