Human Rights Behind Unsettled Borders

The situation of human rights in de facto states of Europe such as Abkhazia, Nagorno-Karabakh, Transnistria and South Ossetia often stay outside of the spotlight of the international attention.

In order to shed light on current situation in de facto states, the side-event
will gather speakers who directly work on the ground and can share
first-hand experience of existing challenges and available means of solution.

There will also be a presentation of the new report ‘Disputed
Territories, Disputed Rights’ by the Norwegian Helsinki Committee and the Foreign Policy Centre.

This side event, jointly hosted by the Norwegian Helsinki Committee, FIDH and the Foreign Policy Centre, takes place at the OSCE’s Human Dimension Implementation Meeting 2019 in Warsaw.
