Palais des Nations, Room XXV, Geneva
In advance of the Human Rights Council elections that will take place this autumn for the membership term 2020-2022, Amnesty International and the International Service for Human Rights will hold a pledging event for candidate States in Geneva on 11 September 2019.
The event is co-sponsored by the Permanent Missions of the Czech Republic, Denmark and Fiji. It is intended to give candidates an opportunity to present their visions for Council membership and to respond to questions from a range of stakeholders on how they propose to realise the pledges and commitments they may have made in seeking election.
State representatives, civil society, national human rights institutions (NHRIs) and other key stakeholders are invited to participate actively in the event and pose questions to candidate States.
Can’t make it or have a question? Follow the event and submit questions to candidates via Twitter: @ISHRglobal #HRCpledging
A mirror event will be held in New York on 6 September.
