Heart’s Home and the 19th Session of the HRC

Entrance to the Palais of United-Nations

From the 27th of February until the 23rd of March 2012, the 19th Session of the HRC will be held.

The HRC is about to follow a very full agenda. Indeed, throughout the ses­sion, Member-States will dis­cuss numerous issues. Heart’s Home will closely follow:

  • The freedom of expression on the internet
  • The freedom of religion and beliefs
  • The annual day for the rights of the child
  • Minorities’ rights
  • A very contemporary and controversial debate on discrimination and violence based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

In par­allel, var­ious events will be held to pro­mote dis­cus­sion between states and NGOs and to encourage the HRC to adopt res­o­lu­tions. Heart’s Home will be organ­ising, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with other NGOs from the Working Group on Human Rights Education and Training, a panel on “In­formal forms of Human Rights Education”. Our NGO will fur­ther­more co-sign written dec­la­ra­tions which will be sub­mitted to the HRC.
