The rule of law, equal access to justice, security, and respect for universal human rights lay at the heart of the Common Agenda and achievement of the SDGs. UNDP’s commitment is crystallized in the Global Programme on Strengthening the Rule of Law and Human Rights for Sustaining Peace and Fostering Development. Anchored on broad partnerships, and in direct response to the Secretary-General’s priorities on prevention and sustaining peace, UNDP’s work through the Global Programme represents a unique and significant contribution to making the SDGs a reality, especially in contexts affected by crisis, transitions, and fragility.
UNDP will convene the 2021 Annual Meeting on Strengthening the Rule of Law and Human Rights for Sustaining Peace and Fostering Development from the 22nd-24th June. It is a platform for examining and reaffirming UNDP’s intention to support global efforts to uphold the rule of law and respect for human rights through the Global Programme, the Global Focal Point, the Tri-Partite Partnership, and other engagements across the rule of law and human rights arena.
The event will include perspectives from a wide range of stakeholders, including high-level UN officials, Permanent Representatives and ministerial-level national counterparts, civil society, and the private sector.
