Thank you Mr. President,
Action Canada makes this statement also on behalf of the Sexual Rights Initiative and AWID.
We welcome the panel’s focus on integrating a gender perspective into the Council’s human rights investigations. We particularly appreciate the panel’s recognition that there has been insufficient attention to pre-existing gender-based rights violations that are exacerbated by conflict settings, as well as the need to ground understandings of gender-based violence in the lived realities of the people most affected.
Thank you, M. President,
