IIMA delivers an oral statement on Peace Education during the CSO meeting on the Right to Peace (January 24, 2013)

On 24 January 2013, the Civil Society Organizations (CSO) Coalition on the Right to Peace organized a meeting in preparation for the first session of the Open Ended Working Group (OEWG) on the Right to Peace to be held from 18-21 February 2013. Established by the Human Rights Council in July 2012 through resolution 20/15, the OEWG has been charged with “progressively negotiating a draft UN declaration on the right to peace on the basis of the draft submitted by the Advisory Committee, and without prejudging relevant past, present and future views and proposals.”
