Delegation to the UN and other international organisations in Geneva
08/12/2013 - Syria: A thousand days of crisis
The Delegation of the European Union to the UN in Geneva gathered today to commonly honour a truly great man and to pay our respect.
On 10 December the EU Delegation in Geneva commemorated the Human Rights Day. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the 1993 World Conference on Human Rights in Vienna. The Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action confirmed the universality of all human rights and led to historic advances in their promotion and protection. It continues to be a source of inspiration for the EU, which has human rights among its founding principles.
The annual Meeting of the States Parties to the Anti-Personal Mine Ban Convention - also known as the Ottawa Convention – takes place for the 13th time in Geneva from 2-5 December 2013 (13MSP).
