GI-ESCR re-elected to the Steering Committee of the Extra-Territorial Obligations Consortium
The Global Initiative for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights was re-elected by its peers to continue serving on the Steering Committee of the Extra-Territorial Obligations Consortium. The GI-ESCR is pleased to continue working with its colleagues and partners who also serve on the Steering Committee and looks forward to contributing further to guiding the ETO Consortium in the coming years, including advancing the ETO agenda at the Vienna +20 World Conference on Human Rights.
The ETO Consortium is a network of leading human rights organizations, university institutes, civil society organizations and institution-based individuals. Its purpose is to address the current shortcomings of human rights interpretation in a globalization context by mainstreaming states’ extraterritorial obligations.
The Global Initiative for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights has been a member of the ETO Consortium since the GI-ESCR’s founding and provides expertise to the Consortium’s International Financial Institution and Development Cooperation Focal Group as well as on strategic litigation.
