Members of civil society in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil participated in a two-day workshop organized by the Center for Justice and International Law (CEJIL) on how to use international and regional systems of human rights protections.

From November 10 to November 11, CEJIL in partnership with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNCHR), deepened participants’ knowledge about the mechanisms of defense available to members of civil society through the United Nations or as established by the American Convention of the Organization of American States for responding to possible human rights abuses.

CEJIL and the UNCHR aimed to provide a road map about the international options offered by the two systems. The workshop represented yet another step forward in the fight for the protection of human rights at both a regional and global level.
