The Obligation to Mobilise Resources: Bridging Human Rights, Sustainable Development Goals and Economic and Fiscal Policies
Thursday 14 December, London, UK

The International Bar Association's Human Rights Institute invites you to the launch of the report, The Obligation to Mobilise Resources: Bridging Human Rights, Sustainable Development Goals and Economic and Fiscal Policies

The event will focus on the IBAHRI’s upcoming report on ’the obligation to mobilise resources’, which refers to a State’s obligation to devote the maximum available resources - including financial and technical - in order to realise economic, social and cultural rights.

A panel of distinguished speakers will discuss the report in light of the current national and international financial climate and examine how economic and fiscal policies, including austerity measures, tax havens and Brexit, can potentially have a negative impact on the enjoyment of human rights.

Many of these institutions play key roles in developing international law, human rights, international relations, and cooperation. 

On the second anniversary of the campaign, GQUAL is convening a diverse group of people from all over the world. The goal is to approve an Action Plan that will build upon the strategies found in the GQUAL Declaration and effectively #ChangethePicture of International Justice.
