Lobbying for Human Rights

Monday, December 10, 2012

Recently Meg Munn MP arranged to meet Lotte Leicht, Brussels Director of Human Rights Watch to discuss concerns about human rights in China and Russia, and how the European Union and member states can influence the actions of these countries. While the social and economic position of citizens in Russia and China are improving, there is growing concern that civil and political rights are deteriorating.

The Brussels office of Human Rights Watch lobbies the European Union and the member states that comprise it on matters pertaining to human rights. They are currently highlighting the forthcoming EU - Russia summit as an opportunity to raise various issues. They hope that it will take a strong position on human rights which will then be followed up by member states. 

Meg said:

"Human Rights Watch perform a valuable role in the European Union by highlighting various issues that EU countries need to take seriously in their bilateral relationships. Developing positive trading relationships with other countries is good for the European Union but these relationships can be used to encourage positive change in the field of human rights.”
