The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Mr Volker Türk, addressed for the first time Members of DROI and LIBE during a joint meeting organised on Thursday 20 July. The meeting provided a timely opportunity to address human rights achievements and global challenges on the matter.

2023 marks the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the 30th anniversary of the Vienna Declaration which established the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR). The European Parliament remains strongly committed to supporting the independence of the OHCHR and its leadership role in protecting and promoting human rights across the globe.
