The EU is seeking the assistance of local organizations working in the area of human rights and democracy - CSOs, NGOs, CBOs, FBOs and activists - to fill out and send back the questionnaire on Human Rights Implementation in Trinidad and Tobago by Friday, 22nd December 2017.
In 1948, after the devastating Second World War, which brought painful divisions in Europe and occupation for many European countries, the international community committed to define, promote and protect human rights. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights that we celebrate on 10 December has enshrined these shared principles and has had a profound influence on the development of the world. But still, almost seventy years on, we are far from the full respect of these commitments all over the world, and we recognize that all states must do more in this respect.
The brochure provides provides information on the basic features of the Economic Partnership Agreements between the EU and African, Caribbean and Pacific countries. It also showcases some of the success stories of EPA implementation that have already begun to emerge.
Male dominance, abuse and harassment are the themes of a compelling spoken word production on Gender-Based Violence (GBV) by The 2 Cents Movement. The play entitled ‘Common Grounds’ aims to take a look at Trinidad and Tobago society and to encourage reflection and discussion on the steps we need to take to end GBV in this country. This play will serve as the centrepiece for the second installation of #LetsTalkTT: Conversations on Gender Equality and Violence against Women.
