The Committee on Enforced Disappearances, the Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances, and the International Coalition against Enforced Disappearances, with the support of the Geneva Human Rights Platform, are convening a webinar on sharing experiences and outcomes of actions taken to promote the ratification of the International Convention for the Protection of all Persons from Enforced Disappearances and the recognition of the full competence of the Committee.
This event will take stock of the actions carried out to promote the ratification of the Convention and share experiences and practices from the perspective of States representatives, civil society organizations, National Human Rights Institutions and UN experts.
The aim is to promote direct contact and information sharing between involved actors to further strengthen strategies and identify actions to be taken.
An online expert consultation co-organized with the UN Human Rights’ B-Tech Project discussed regulatory and policy responses to human rights challenges linked to digital technologies.
For this spring semester, we offer a series of online short courses on topical and contemporary issues in the field of international humanitarian law, human rights and transitional justice.
This online event will discuss the draft General Comment on land and economic, social and cultural rights currently developed by the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
This short course, which can be followed in Geneva or online, will provide participants with an introduction to substantive human rights law. It will start with an introduction to the nature and sources of international human rights law and its place in the international legal system. The course will then provide a presentation of the main principles applicable to substantive rights (jurisdiction, obligation and limitations).

The Geneva Human Rights Platform contributes to this review process by providing expert input via different avenues, by facilitating dialogue on the review among various stakeholders, as well as by accompanying the development of a follow-up resolution to 68/268 in New York and in Geneva.
