Organised by: IBON International Europe, Council for People’s Development and Governance (CPDG), Viva Salud, People’s Coalition on Food Sovereignty (PCFS) and Asia-Pacific Research Network (APRN)
The webinar is part of the 13th Asia-Europe People’s Forum (AEPF). It will bring together analysis from Europe and Asia on the weaponisation of the pandemic against the people, highlight good and effective practices of people’s organizations and civil society in pushing back shrinking spaces, human rights violations and political repression, and discuss the use and effectiveness of available international human rights instruments and mechanisms. Participants will identify challenges and recommendations to forge greater solidarity among peoples, and present recommendations to European and Asian parliamentarians on opening up spaces and strengthening support for campaigns and advocacy engagements on people’s rights.
