 Within the framework of an international workshop devoted to the United Nations and Human rights, the delegation from Armenia moderated, on December 13 at the UN Office in Geneva, a panel discussion entitled “The Role of National Human Rights Institutions and NGOs in Joint Actions toward Protection of Women’s Rights.”  

In her opening remarks, Armenia’s representative underscored the role of NGOs and national institutions in the protection of women’s rights, and stressed the need for a cooperation among them, the UN, and the regional mechanisms.   

The three-day thematic discussions during the international workshop were devoted to three directions in cooperation between the UN and regional mechanisms: Information exchange, joint activities, and development of specific proposals for the carrying out of previous commitments.
