Annual Geneva Conference
Human Rights Centre
This annual conference is hosted by Geneva Academy, with the panels organised with Essex Armed Conflict and Crisis Hub and other partnerships.
The first Annual Conference of the Geneva Human Rights Platform (GHRP) will focus on the connectivity of human rights mechanisms both within the United Nations (UN) human rights system, but also with national and regional mechanisms.
Building on the 2019 Annual Conference which explored the connectivity of human rights mechanisms within the United Nations (UN) human rights system, the 2020 Annual Conference of the Geneva Human Rights Platform will focus on the connectivity between regional and global human rights mechanisms. It will also discuss relevant links with national systems and the overall effectiveness of these interactions in a number of specific policy areas like climate change, the fight against corruption or the COVID-19 pandemic.
