High Commissioner addressed Samarkand Youth Rights Forum

On August 12, International Youth Day, High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation Tatiana Moskalkova took part in Samarkand Human Rights Forum "Youth 2020: Global Solidarity, Sustainable Development and Human Rights".

The web forum was held to discuss the role of youth in ensuring peace and security, implementing the sustainable development goals and identifying key human rights problems.

Tatiana Moskalkova spoke about the activity of the High Commissioner for the protection of youth rights, as well as the appeals to the federal ombudswoman.

"Every year I receive numerous appeals from young people finding themselves in difficult conditions. The applications concern a wide range of issues, like the right to general and professional education, housing for orphans and children left without parental care, housing for young families, assistance in getting jobs, and so on," Moskalkova said.

The federal ombudswoman noted that during the pandemic, the most complicated issues were employment, education and health care, and proposed the creation of an international workforce bank.

According to the High Commissioner, such a bank of jobs will offer young people wider prospects as concerns search for vacancies and facilitate support provided by national governments.

In addition, the federal ombudswoman spoke about human rights education: the All-Russian Comprehensive Human Rights Lesson, the master’s program "International Protection of Human Rights", as well as the development of educational standards and programs "Human Rights".

"468 thousand students have graduated from educational programs on human rights in universities, and today we are working on a common textbook. I invite all international organizations and ombudspersons to create some kind of international UN textbook on human rights so that it can be used as a standard, as a methodological framework in other universities of the states," Tatiana Moskalkova noted.

In conclusion, the High Commissioner emphasized the importance of promoting projects that would strengthen the guarantees of the youth rights in labor, social, educational spheres and medicine.
