This seminar was the second seminar out of three in the UN70: A new Agenda seminar series, which NUPI co-organises with the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It focused on human rights – one of the pillars on which the United Nations’ work is based – and explored the organisation’s work to promote human rights at country level and through its various mechanisms.

The discussions aimed to identify ideas and suggestions for the agenda of the next Secretary-General, who takes office on 1 of January 2017.
