Public workshops on human rights for the Universal Periodic Review
This is NOT to be confused with the Review of the Convention on the Rights for Persons with Disabilities.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) is responsible for this broader human rights review and for writing the national report covering a range of current issues in New Zealand.
MFAT is engaging with government agencies to seek advice on the issues to be included in the 20-page report. They also want to hear from you - including the disability community - about your experience of human rights in New Zealand.
MFAT is running workshops during February and March:
