Freedom of expression and religion: Tolerance, Respect, Dignity
For the first time, the Geneva Centre covered the General Debate which marks the beginning of the UN General Assembly session, at which Heads of State or Foreign Ministers take the floor. We followed it live and shared posts, described below, in real time, even as the dignitaries were still speaking.
A total of 54 posts in relation to the UN General Assembly General Debate were produced and shared by the Geneva Centre. Each post is unique, and contains a quote of a world leader, in relation to human rights, followed by a message from the Centre in relation to the quote.
As during the previous regular sessions of the United Nations Human Rights Council, the Geneva Centre will produce succinct summary reports of selected plenary meetings that will take place during the 45th session of the Council.
All summaries will be made available for download here.
Children are among the most vulnerable group affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. This video, produced by the Geneva Centre, shows how the virus itself, as well as the responses to combat it, have led to serious violations of children’s rights.

The pandemic and subsequent confinement, although severely hampering usual work practices, in fact proved very rich in outputs through introspection, analyses, projections and pathways for the future. During the four months from April to July, the Geneva Centre participated in, and prepared and widely distributed reports on 57 webinars dealing with several subjects of interest in the domain of human rights.
