NHC participating at HDIM in Warszaw
The Norwegian Helsinki Committee is actively and well represented at this years' OSCE Human Dimension Implementation Meeting in Warsaw. In our interventions at the meeting we will focus on freedom of religion in Central Asia, rule of law in Azerbaijan, Belarus and Bosnia and Herzegovina, and freedom of expression in Macedonia, Bosnia and Serbia. We are organising a side-event on lack of justice after major human rights violations in Russia, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. Additionally we organise a side-event on strikers' rights in Kazakhstan and we are also co-organising a side-event with particular focus on Ales Bialiatski and the release of political prisoners in Belarus. Below you will find links to the HDIM webpage, all documents from our side-events and interventions and other relevant links.
The OSCE Human Dimension Implementation Meeting is the largest annual human rights gathering in Europe, bringing together hundreds of government representatives, experts and human rights activists to review progress made by the 56 OSCE participating States in implementing their commitments in the field of human rights, democracy and the rule of law. HDIM is therefore an important arena for the NHC to state our opinion on the development in the countries we are focusing on, meet partners and lobby on governments.
