SIDE EVENT: Exploring the economic and social dimensions of the right to life
Join us for a Side event at the 40th session of the Human Rights Council:
6 March 2019, 13:30 – 15:00
Room XXIV, Palais des Nations, Geneva
This event will explore the ever-deepening relationship between economic and social rights and the right to life. It will consider the legal developments at the regional and national levels and how they have contributed to the position taken in General Comment 36. It will critically examine whether the positive advances in GC 36 have the potential to advance economic and social rights including by providing a stepping stone towards full access to justice for persons living in poverty.
