Mauritania: Study visit for civil society organisations
Following on from the training courses offered in 2018 and 2019 on documenting cases of human rights violations and advocacy techniques, four young activists were able to benefit from a study visit to Europe. This week allowed them to meet with multiple institutions and NGOs in Paris, Geneva and Brussels in preparation for the Universal Periodic Review of Mauritania in November 2020.
In this perspective, advice and strategic considerations were given to participants to prepare an alternative report before March 2020. Women’s rights, the fight against marginalization and slavery were at the heart of the discussions.
