About forum

The Forum’s integral approach is to gather both representatives of all three branches of power, civil society and national human rights institutions (NHRIs) in order to reiterate states’ commitment to the core principles of human rights, in particular, to the principle of universality. 

The Government of Uzbekistan – as the convener of the Forum – would like to offer a platform for the participants to reaffirm their commitment to ensure human rights for all.
