Human rights should be essential drivers of national policy in every nation in the world. The Geneva Centre recognizes that increased awareness about the importance of human rights is the first and most important step we can take in this direction.

The Centre follows and participates in the United Nations meetings of the human rights mechanisms, where it delivers oral statements, produces reports and engages in advocacy activities. To raise awareness about human rights, the Geneva Centre also produces written statements on the occasion of international commemorative days, issues position papers, shares summary reports of international webinars and conferences, and regularly produces videos linked to pressing human rights issues.
