Ensuring the Right to Food Through Human Rights Impact Assessments - Side Event to the 28th Session of the Human Rights Council

At this expert round-table, we presented and discussed the results of the Human Rights Impact Assessment (HRIA)-study “Owning seeds, accessing food”.

Following recent experiences in implementing HRIA in practice, the panelists discussed the strengths and shortcomings of the HRIA approach and identified challenges for future HRIAs. The discussion also focused on the potential role of the UN human rights system in strengthening HRIAs and in supporting its use in public policy making.
