Pre-Glion V Policy Dialogue with the Permanent Mission of Thailand on ‘the place of human rights in a reformed United Nations’

Ahead of Glion V, 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 ‘the place of human rights in a reformed United Nations’.

On Tuesday 1st May 2018, the Permanent Mission of Thailand and the URG hosted a Policy Dialogue on ‘Delivering on-the-ground impact, and communicating success and relevance’.

The event brought together around 50 senior level human rights experts to exchange views on a number of issues including, ‘Where has the human rights pillar had a positive impact on the enjoyment of human rights on the ground, and also by extension, on peace and security and sustainable development?’ and ‘What lessons can we glean from such positive impact case studies in terms of how the international community can improve the human rights pillar’s ability to generate more impact, more of the time? Does the UN human rights pillar suffer from an ‘image problem’? If so, how can we better communicate relevance, value and success?’

The agenda of the meeting can be consulted here.

The background paper of the policy dialogue can be found here.
