We are pleased to invite you to a side event for the 47th Session of the Human Rights Council, taking place on July 13 at 2:00-3:30 PM CEST.
Join us for an exciting dialogue among UN and civil society panelists to hear how nationalist and fundamentalist trends worldwide are concretely manifesting as backlash against rights related to gender and sexuality in human rights systems. We will highlight the new Observatory on the Universality of Rights (OURs) Trends Report, Rights at Risk: Time for Action as a tool for action and explore strategic opportunities that civil society, UN mandate holders, and States can leverage to stem the anti-rights tide within the UN.
The event will be in English with simultaneous interpretation in Spanish and French. Closed captioning will be available in English.
