The Geneva Human Rights Platform holds regular events, diplomatic briefings, conferences, expert roundtables and private meetings.
This event marks the launch of the UN Human Rights Guidance on Less Lethal Weapons, the outcome of research and consultations carried out under the Geneva Academy and Pretoria University auspices.
In the context of the 2019 Geneva Peace Week and in partnership with IBAHRI, this event will address the too often obstructed right to legal assistance persons subjected to violence, arrest or detention are entitled to.
This event, organized by the Permanent Mission of Japan and co-sponsored by the Permanent Missions of France, Canada, Mexico and Finland and the Geneva Academy, will discuss the challenges in economically empowering women.
