- International Partnerships InfoPoint
The European Commission has updated the EU Toolbox on the Human Rights-Based Approach. Following up on the requirement of the NDICI Global Europe, it provides practical tools, guidance and examples, for placing the individuals and their human rights at the centre of our international partnerships. The Toolbox aims at strengthening democracy through participation, non-discrimination, transparency and accountability.
The conference will be introduced by Ms Chiara Adamo, Acting Director INTPA Human development, Migration, Governance and Peace. Further to the presentation of the main features of the newly adopted HRBA toolbox the discussion will focus on the key relevance of the human rights-based approach for development cooperation and the promotion of democracy and good governance.
This Infopoint event is part of the 2021 Democracy Week online conference. With a focus on the renewed global democracy agenda, the 2021 Democracy Week will feature an exciting line-up of international speakers from across the democracy spectrum who will speak of their experiences of democracy partnerships, from inter-state cooperation, transnational and trans-sectoral partnerships to local initiatives. Sessions take place on 15, 16 and 17 September, with topics ranging from democracy support in Afghanistan to democracy and digitalisation. Find out more about the rest of the agenda here.
