Beginning of the 28th Session of the Human Rights Council

The Human Rights Council has convened at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, for its 28th session, running from 2nd to 27th March. GWI has co-signed a statement on the role of protecting the media and journalists from attack, in partnership with the NGO working group on human rights education and learning (HREL). Amongst other things, the statement calls on the Human Rights Council to consider a follow up resolution on the UN Declaration on Human Rights Education and Training, in order to reaffirm the political commitment to provide human right education, as enshrined in the Declaration. Read the Declaration in full here.


GWI’s office is relocating to another Geneva location on 16 August.  For a few days, we will have limited access to our emails, telephone and website. We appreciate your understanding during this time of positive change. We will be back to normal working conditions on Monday, 21 August.


Thank you, GWI Staff.
