Side Event to the Human Rights Council. Prevention and Early Warning of Conflict - The Role of Economic, Social and Cultural Rights

This Side Event aimed to explore the links between economic, social and cultural rights and the prevention of destructive conflict and violence as well as sustaining peace.

During the meeting, OHCHR launched its June 2016 Report on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and Early Warning of Conflict which demonstrates the links between violations of economic, social and cultural rights and violence, social unrest and conflict. The discussion offered space to analyze the role of violations of economic, social and cultural rights as early warning indicators in effective preventive action of conflict.
