Preventing and Addressing Intimidation or Reprisals for Cooperation with the UN in the Field of Human Rights
Given the evolving online and hybrid modalities of participation at the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), UN Women, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), and the NGO Committee on the Status of Women, New York (NGO CSW/NY) have identified the need to facilitate this informal session on preventing and addressing intimidation or reprisal for cooperation with the United Nations (UN), in the context of CSW.
The objective is to provide a platform to share and discuss how preventing and addressing acts of intimidation and reprisals for engagement with the UN in the field of human rights is a key component of enabling a safe civic environment to promote the voices, agency and leadership of women, human rights and gender advocates.
