OACDH – Oficina Regional en el Medio Oriente y Africa del Norte
The OHCHR Regional Office for the Middle East (ROME) was established in Beirut in 2002 as an advisory office to the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) originally. The Regional Office covers eleven countries: Bahrain, Jordan, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.
Centro para el sudoeste Asia y la región árabe
The idea for the creation of the Centre was born out of the 12th Asian Regional Forum on Human Rights, which was held in Doha in March 2004. The then HR Commission welcomed the idea in 2005 and Resolution 153/60 for the “Establishment of the UN Human Rights Training Documentation Centre for South West Asia and the Arab Region" was adopted in 2005.
