Event description

Description

UNDP will convene the 2018 Annual Meeting on Strengthening the Rule of Law and Human Rights for Sustaining Peace and Fostering Development in June as a platform to examine and reaffirm its intention to support global efforts to uphold the rule of law and respect for human rights through the Global RoL/HR Programme, the Global Focal Point, the Tri-Partite Partnership, and its other engagements across the system in the human rights and rule of law areas. The 2018 Annual Meeting aims not only to report back on the work facilitated through the Global RoL/HR Programme, but more broadly to probe and highlight how the UN system should orient its combined efforts to support national partners’ efforts to strengthen justice, security, and respect for human rights. As one of the few recurring global-level events within the UN system dedicated exclusively to rule of law and human rights assistance, the 2018 Annual Rule of Law and Human Rights Meeting provides a singular platform for a wide range of stakeholders to shape the international agenda for rule of law and human rights assistance.

The Annual Meeting will be held in New York, from the morning of Tuesday 19 June, through the afternoon of Friday 22 June. Participants will include high-level UN officials, Permanent Representatives and ministerial-level national counterparts, partners from Member States and from across the UN System, and representatives from think tanks, academia, and civil society. Individual questions can be addressed to Ms. Christi Sletten: christi.sletten@undp.org

The full package of information will be emailed to registered participants by Sunday 17 June.
