[Event] HRC52 Side Event – Human Rights in Myanmar
17 March 2023 3:33 pm

The political upheaval and attempted military coup in Myanmar have created a #humanrights crisis that demands immediate attention from the international community. The military junta has been accountable for numerous human rights violations, including arbitrary arrests, extrajudicial killings and the use of deadly force against peaceful protestors. It’s important to note that the human rights crisis in Myanmar has also led to the persecution of minority groups, particularly the Rohingya, and a significant migration crisis in the region. The situation is dire, with millions of people facing serious threats to their safety and well-being.
Join us at Palais des Nations Room XXII next Monday in a #HRC52 side event that will provide a platform to discuss the situation in Myanmar and the role of the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Myanmar, CSOs and the diplomatic community in addressing the issue and their recommendations for moving forward.
This event is hosted by FORUM-ASIA and United Nations Human Rights OHCHR Special Procedures Branch
