The first Social Forum (2004)

The second Social Forum was held in 2004 with a focus on the relationship between rural poverty and the rights of peasants and other rural communities.
The 2004 Social Forum was comprised of four panels:

  • Poverty and human rights: empowerment of people living in poverty
  • Rural poverty and extreme poverty: special groups
  • The role of human rights in the development of operational strategies to address poverty
  • Recommendations on elements for incorporating human rights into poverty reduction strategies

The report of the 2004 Social Forum (E/CN.4/Sub.2/2004/26) was submitted to the Sub-Commission at its fifty-sixth session. It contains a summary of each panel discussion, conclusions and recommendations.
