Komnas HAM, UNESCO Renew Partnership on Promotion of Human Rights in Indonesia
The agreement covers common areas of interest, including freedom of expression, media freedom, artistic freedom, Human-Right based analysis of SDGs and the rights of persons with disabilities.
For 73 years, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights has been a global beacon – shining a light for dignity and well-being.
However, the COVID-19 pandemic has deepened pre-existing divides, vulnerabilities, inequalities, including fault-lines in Human Rights, where we see a vicious cycle of violations across the globe.
Komnas HAM and UNESCO formalized the cooperation for the first time in 2017 to monitor the implementation of SDGs from the Human Rights perspective.
"This MoU commits us to work together more closely towards our shared common goals in promoting and strengthening human rights-based approach in Indonesia, “said Ahmad Taufan Damanik, Chairperson of KOMNAS HAM, in a press release on Thursday.
Through this MoU, Komnas HAM and UNESCO will strengthen the capacity-building of government institutions at the center and in the provinces in embracing the Human Rights principles in executing their duties.
