Helping Human Rights develop across the Middle East and North Africa

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Meg Munn MP recently helped facilitate a workshop which brought together members of Human Rights Committees from parliaments in the Middle East and North Africa. MPs from Tunisia, Morocco, and Iraq were present, along with committee advisers from Iraq and Lebanon. MPs from the previous Egyptian parliament’s Human Rights Committee also attended along with their advisers.

Discussions at the workshop focused on international human rights standards and how to apply them in the region. Members of the former Human Rights committee in Egypt emphasised that they had had achieved consensus in the committee which included MPs from across the political spectrum. This made the work of the committee more effective and the committee’s views more influential. 

Meg commented:

"This was a very positive workshop with the parliamentarians showing a strong commitment to the principles of human rights. They are keen to remain in contact and to learn from each other. Two years on from the start of the Arab Spring the hard work of building a democracy is being embraced by parliaments across the region."
