Second URG Human Rights Council programme for journalists (32nd session)

In the context of the URG’s broader media engagement project, during the last week of the 32nd session of the Council, the URG brought seven journalists from different regions to Geneva to follow developments, especially during voting. During their time in Geneva, the journalists benefited from briefing sessions with URG analysts, key diplomats, and representatives of the OHCHR and the ICRC. They also held information exchange sessions with a selection of Geneva-based human rights NGOs, with the International Federation of Journalists and with Geneva-based press correspondents.

This was the second of three media visits/workshops planned for 2016. The first was held in March 2016 (31st session), and the 3rd will take place in September 2016 (33rd session). At the end of the year, the URG will publish the findings of a year-long media survey, to understand public interest in and perceptions of the Council.
