African Union – European Union Civil Society Human Rights Seminar

African Union – European Union Civil Society Human Rights Seminar

 In November 2011, the GI-ESCR participated in a two-day seminar held in Brussels to discuss the situation of the right to housing in Europe and Africa – main challenges and main groups at risk.

Specific input of the GI-ESCR, which found its way into the outcome document’s recommendations,  included: (1) A call for the African Union and the European Union to ensure that good housing rights decision from regional human rights bodies are enforced and their remedial orders implemented; (2) that the content of housing rights be fully informed and defined by actual rights-holders; (3) that European Union States meet their extra-territorial obligation to protect by regulating their corporations for activities undertaken abroad; and (4) that the Maastricht Principles on Extra-Territorial Obligations are explicitly referred to when advocating for extra-territorial obligations.

 

The Final Recommendations of the Seminar are available HERE.
