An intersessional workshop on the right to peace will be held on Thursday, 14 June 2018, at the Palais des Nations, Geneva.
On 22 June 2017, the Human Rights Council decided to convene, with the support of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, in the period between the thirty-seventh and the thirty-eighth sessions of the Human Rights Council, a half-day intersessional workshop on the right to peace, to discuss the implementation of the Declaration on the Right to Peace (A/HRC/RES/35/4), adopted by the General Assembly on 19 December 2016 (A/RES/71/189).
The intersessional workshop will focus, in the first part, on means to build peace within and between societies, including equality and non-discrimination, justice and the rule of law and freedom from fear and want (Article 2 of the Declaration on the Right to Peace).
In the second part, the intersessional workshop will concentrate on sustainable measures by States, the United Nations and specialized agencies to implement the Declaration on the Right to Peace, as well as measures by international, regional, national and local organizations and civil society to support and assist in its implementation (Article 3 of the Declaration on the Right to Peace).
The third part will address the universal task of educating for peace, including through international and national institutions of education for peace as well as the University for Peace’s engagement in teaching, research, post-graduate training and dissemination of knowledge (Article 4 of the Declaration on the Right to Peace).
