La Unión Europea (UE) visita Barrancabermeja hoy 22 de septiembre con el objetivo de acompañar a varias organizaciones y defensores de derechos humanos que están siendo objeto de amenazas, ataques e intimidaciones por su trabajo.
A delegation composed of four members of the European Parliament's Subcommittee on Human Rights (DROI), David Martin (S&D, UK), Richard Howitt (S&D, UK), Judith Sargentini (Greens/EFA, NL) and Karol Karski (ECR, PL) concluded its visit to The Gambia.
Sufficient, equitable and efficient investment in children is crucial for the full realisation of children's civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights. Investment in children is not only a legal obligation under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, but also an economic strategy for long-term sustainable development. In order to raise attention to the issue of public budgeting for the realisation of children's rights, the EU Delegation to the UN in Geneva, the Permanent Mission of Uruguay, UNICEF and NGO partners, hosted a side-event to the 33rd Session of the Human Rights Council.
