A committee is permitted to organise a hearing with experts, where this is considered essential to its work on a particular subject. Hearings can also be held jointly by two or more committees. Most committees organise regular hearings, as they allow them to hear from experts and hold discussions on the key issues. On this page you will find all the available information relating to committee hearings, including programmes and contributions from speakers.

21-06-2017 - Joint hearing on Human Rights and Development

DROI DEVE 15-06-2017 - 15:12

DROI and DEVE will hold a joint hearing on 'Human Rights and Development'. Respect for human rights and sustainable development policy are two sides of the same coin. Guest speakers will therefore address the question of a human rights-based approach to development, its implications for policy areas, also focusing on the case of indigenous peoples, and the state of play of the UN Declaration on the Right to Development.
