Working Group 2: The UN Human Rights Development Tools

Working Group II focuses on the idea of "One UN" (and the role of the EU therein) and on a human rights based approach to development (strengthening of national human rights institutions).
The sub-topic will be able to provide recommendations on how the EU can promote an Office of the High Commissioner that better supports the development of human rights institutions at the national level, either through the existing other UN institutions at the country level or through their own country-offices, and ultimately on how a "One UN" can support this process.
