During the session, from 7 to 11 July 2014, lunch-time events related to the mandate of the Expert Mechanism can be organized from 13:15 to 14:45. Due to the limited availability of rooms, only two lunch-time events can take place each day.

The Expert Mechanism is encouraging the organization of lunch-time events that contribute to its mandate and specifically to the agenda of the session, in particular in relation to access to justice for indigenous peoples, the promotion and protection of the rights of indigenous peoples in disaster risk reduction initiatives, and the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. 

To apply to hold a lunch-time event, please send a letter to expertmechanism@ohchr.org explaining:

  • the title of the event;
  • the names of the organizer/s;
  • the purpose of your proposed lunch-time event;
  • its relationship to the seventh session;
  • the language of the event;
  • whether interpretation will be provided; and
  • the preferred day for the lunch-time event.

Decisions by the secretariat on lunch-time events – including day and room - will be final.  Relevant factors include the order in which the application was received and its relationship to the work of the Seventh session of the Expert Mechanism.
