THE FUTURE WE WANT TO SEE
THE RULE OF LAW AND HUMAN RIGHTS SECURING THE SOCIAL CONTRACT
2020 UNDP Annual Meeting:
Strengthening the Rule of Law and Human Rights for Sustaining Peace and Fostering Development
The meeting aims to promote an exchange between Member States, Practitioners, UNDP and UN experts and civil society on the rule of law, security and human rights. Whilst reflecting on the achievements of 2019, we will also take a close look at the complexity of the crisis precipitated by the Covid-19 virus pandemic in the rule of law sphere. In particular, we will showcase innovative responses based on human rights and built from solid partnerships with governments, civil society and the private sector.
We will launch an open, global conversation on the next phase of the UNDP Global Programme (2022-2025) to determine how best UNDP can orient its future support. We will also showcase a new global initiative on Business and Human Rights.
