Ensuring democracy and human rights in the climate pillar and the migration and fragility pillar
Mandag 24 Januar 2022, 12:30 - 15:30

Join us at the workshop where we will set objectives on how to ensure democracy and human rights in the climate pillar and the migration and fragility pillar of the development cooperation strategy.

 

The new Danish development cooperation strategy “The world we share” sends a strong signal by placing human rights and democratic values as the foundation of Danish development cooperation. The strategy acknowledges the importance of democracy and human rights as both goals in themselves and as “a means to creating a more safe, just, resilient and sustainable world.” However, while concrete objectives for what Denmark wants to achieve are outlined for the two pillars of the strategy, 1) We create hope and 2) Climate, nature and environment, this is not the case for democracy and human rights, constituting the foundation. 

 

To ensure vision, ideas and ambition for the foundation, Global Focus invites member organisations and other actors in the development sector to take part in a process this winter to create concrete objectives for democracy and human rights. We will host four workshops to discuss and formulate objectives for how Denmark can work ambitiously with human rights and democracy throughout the full strategy period.

 

The objectives developed as a result of the four workshops will be launched at a public event in the beginning of 2022. 

 

 More information about each workshop will be shared ahead of the workshop with the participants.

 

The workshops are open to everyone.

 

Workshop 4:
Ensuring democracy and human rights in the climate pillar and the migration and fragility pillar

 

While democracy and human rights are crucial goals in themselves, they also constitute preconditions for a broader vision for a world where no one lives in poverty or conflict affected areas, everyone is treated equally no matter of their background, and infrastructure and systems are sustainable for the next generations.

 

With the last workshop we want to underscore the importance of integrating democracy and human rights into all work in the new development cooperation strategy, underlining that democracy and human rights is the foundation of the strategy.

 

Join us for this important workshop, where we will look at how we can strengthen the commitment and approach of democracy and human rights in the work of climate, nature and environment as well as migration and fragility.
