Expert Mechanism on the Right to Development Online Dialogue with Civil Society

The online dialogue with civil society is organized as part of a series of stakeholder engagement meetings related to the mandate of the Expert Mechanism on the Right to Development (EMRTD).

The EMRTD was established by the Human Rights Council in 2019 to provide the Council with thematic expertise on the right to development in searching for, identifying, and sharing best practices with Member States, and to promote the implementation of the right to development worldwide. The EMRTD began operating in 2020 and has been guided by two overarching themes, namely, to reinvigorate and mainstream the Right to Development, and to empower civil society and grassroots organizations to use the Right to Development in their work.

The EMRTD is therefore interested in learning from civil society organizations and supporting civil society engagement with the aim of identifying good practices, opportunities and challenges that can be shared with states, international organizations, and other stakeholders.
