Eurasian Ombudsman Alliance Meeting

23 April 2020
Eurasian Ombudsman Alliance Meeting

On April 29, the meeting of the Eurasian Ombudsman Alliance (EOA) will be held for the first time in the video conference format.

The ombudsmen will discuss the protection of human and civil rights and freedoms in the context of the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory, the impact of unilateral sanctions and the best practices in protecting human rights in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In 2019, multilateral cooperation with ombudsmen of foreign countries was signifi-cantly 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.

In addition, the Alliance has developed new formats of interaction, including joint receptions of citizens and consultations on a wide range of human rights issues.

The meeting will be attended by the heads of national human rights institutions of Armenia, Iran, Kyrgyzstan, Serbia, Tajikistan, Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, the National Center for human rights in the Republic of Uzbekistan and representatives of the National Human Rights Commission of Mongolia.
