COST Action: The Role of the EU in the UN Human Rights Reform

The new COST Action The Role of the EU in the UN Human Rights Reform builds upon the cooperation of the AHRI network (Association of Human Rights Institutes) in the framework of the former COST Action Human Rights, Peace and Security in EU Foreign Policy. The start-up meeting took place in Utrecht, Netherlands, in February 2009.

The main objective of the Action is to increase and consolidate knowledge of the ongoing process of institutional and procedural reforms of the United Nations human rights system, so as to recommend standpoints for the European Union in the process working towards strengthening the protection of human rights world-wide.

12 countries with 17 institutions are actually sharing this action. Macedonia and Luxembourg will be the next MC-members.
