Joint Statement at the UN on Local Government and Human Rights


Join the GCH and watch through live UNTV an insightful plenary session of the United Nations Human Rights Council. More than 40 States will issue a Joint Statement underscoring the importance of local governments in advancing human rights globally.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn how capacity building can empower local authorities in understanding and implementing international human rights law. Together, we can translate human rights principles into tangible realities, benefiting both states and local authorities.

A joint statement in the UN Human Rights Council is a diplomatic tool utilized by multiple states to collectively address human rights issues. It amplifies their shared stance or proposals on global human rights matters, enhancing their diplomatic influence and advocacy efforts.

This joint statement highlights the crucial role of local authorities in implementing human rights at the grassroots level. In the global picture of effective multilateralism efforts,  it aligns with initiatives like CHAMP initiative of the COP28 which is also a State initiative showing commitment to cooperate with local and subnational governments.

These initiatives emphasize that while the international system primarily collaborates with central governments, local governments and other subnational governments play a crucial role in implementing rights and instruments at the grassroots level.
