Explored possibilities for collaboration

The Executive Secretary of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR), Mr Paulo Abrao visited EWC on 2 June.


Mr Abrau and senior specialist Silvia Amieva are visiting several European countries to share the Commission’s views on the main human rights challenges that the countries of the Americas are facing. They also presented the recently approved Strategic Plan 2017-2021, highlighting the priorities in the years ahead.

In a meeting with EWC Director Ana Perona-Fjeldstad, they discussed the present human right's situation in the Americas and Europe, and the shared concerns about increasing nationalistic trends threatening core democratic and human rights values.

In addition they also explored possible future collaboration on human rights education and education for democratic citizenship, which is one of the main components of the new IACHR Strategic Plan.
