Online human rights tool discussed with UN human rights office

The Agency explored aspects of the online human rights tool it is developing with the UN’s human rights office in Geneva on 16 and 17 January.

The tool will retrieve information and data from UN, Council of Europe, and EU. The meeting brought together experts on UN human rights monitoring mechanisms and its existing databases. The Agency’s contractor for IT development also attended the meeting. While in Geneva, meetings were also held with the International Labour Organization, the European External Action Service and civil society organisation, in addition to a number of other meetings with OHCHR staff on other issues than the online tool.
