Briefing Note: Human Rights Up Front

To further stress the central importance of human rights within the UN, Secretary General Ban Ki Moon launched the “Human Rights Up Front” initiative in December 2013. The Human Rights Up Front initiative recommends six actions to more effectively secure human rights throughout all of the UN’s engagements. The need for early action, and the crucial role of responding early to human rights violations, is at the heart of the “Human Rights up Front” initiative.
