Luncheon Policy Dialogue on ‘New York perspectives on the General Assembly’s 2021-2026 review of the Human Rights Council’s status’

The Permanent Missions of Iceland to the UN in New York and Geneva, together with the Permanent Mission of Denmark to the UN and the Universal Rights Group (URG NY) will host a luncheon on “‘New York perspectives on the General Assembly’s 2021-2026 review of the Human Rights Council’s status” on Thursday May 9th.

The objective of the luncheon is to create a platform of informal policy dialogue under Chatham House Rules to discuss New York perspectives on the General Assembly‘s 2021-2026 review of the Human Rights Council‘s status. The luncheon will offer an opportunity for a strategic discussion by Member States on the upcoming 2021-2026 Human Rights Council Review, including on preliminary thinking on this topic in New York (and what preparations remain), what contributions would be useful from the Council and Geneva-based stakeholders, and what coordination would be helpful going forward.

This event will follow the larger pre-Glion policy dialogue on the same topic, co-organized by the Permanent Missions of Iceland to the UN in NY and Geneva, and the Universal Rights Group-NYC. This policy dialogue is one of four preceding the sixth Glion Human Rights Dialogue (Glion VI), organized by Switzerland and the Universal Rights Group, which will be held on 27-28 May 2019 and will focus on the topic: ‘Towards 2026: Perspectives on the future of the Human Rights Council.’
