On December 18, the meeting of the Eurasian Ombudsman Alliance (EOA) will be held in Moscow under the chairmanship of High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation Tatiana Moskalkova.
The participants of the meeting will discuss the mechanisms of human rights protection in the territory of the EOA and determine the further development vector of the Alliance.
In 2019, multilateral cooperation with ombudsmen of foreign countries was significantly expanded within the framework of the new multilateral community established in 2017 — the Eurasian Ombudsman Alliance, which became a platform uniting progressive human rights forces. As a result, EOA members have established effective cooperation on ensuring, respecting and protecting human rights.
This year, the Alliance has developed new formats of interaction, including joint receptions of citizens and consultations on a wide range of human rights issues, as well as continued bilateral cooperation between the High Commissioner and the ombudsmen of foreign countries through cooperation agreements.
