The Geneva Centre’s most recent Newsletter gives a spotlight on the main activities of the Centre during May – October 2023.
Two international panel events were held: in June, the Geneva Centre hosted a thought-provoking online panel event focusing on the issue of Surveillance Technologies and Human Rights. On 6 September, the Geneva Centre held successfully its major conference entitled “Environment, Climate Change and Women and Children’s Rights: Challenges, Perspectives and the Role of Indigenous Peoples”. It was co-sponsored by the Permanent Missions of Chile, Cabo Verde, and Finland. The in-depth report on the conference was released. The report further provides, based on the proceedings of the conference, additional analyses, information, illustrative examples, and best practices. The publication aims to serve as a preparatory background document for the stakeholders taking part in the UNFCCC COP-28.
The Geneva Centre monitored the 53rd and 54th regular sessions of the UN Human Rights Council under its HRC Reporting Initiative. Additionally, the second edition of the immersive “Human Rights & Global Governance” Training Program was held in June.
The Geneva Centre published episodes of its exciting new initiative Scientific Café under the theme “Right to a Healthy Environment: Significance for the Ordinary Citizen”.
