Developing the Alliance
Achieving the goals of the Alliance requires continued efforts.
An upcoming opportunity to take the common effort forward will be, for instance, a Ministerial-level event on the 24th of February 2020 in Geneva. The event, which will take place at the margins of the High Level Segment of the Human Rights Council, aims to drive forward the work of the Alliance on two concrete issues with particular relevance for our work in the Geneva institutions: the fight against impunity and the safeguarding of humanitarian space and international humanitarian law.
Furthermore, the 75th anniversary of the United Nations in 2020 will be a pivotal moment to promote multilateralism (High-Level Event 21 September 2020).
There will also be additional initiatives and events under the thematic headings of the Alliance, such as human rights, international humanitarian law, cyberspace, future technologies, disarmament and arms control, global public goods and strengthening international institutions.
