Policy Dialogue

The HR/IHL Secretariat targets making meaningful contributions to policy development among donors and between donors and the human rights’ sector. This can involve influencing constitutional, institutional, and governmental spheres of activity.

Policy dialogue makes problem-solving approaches developed in the context of projects and programmes available to decision-makers. The Secretariat’s Donors, as well as other potential donors will be invited to participate. The Donors may – parallel to the dialogue through the HR/IHL Secretariat jointly maintain a continuous dialogue and conduct separate meetings/conferences with relevant HR/IHL CSOs on challenges to the sector to ensure that Donors have necessary strategic background information for setting the Secretariat policies.

The key mechanism for the Secretariat’s policy dialogue interventions is the Secretariat’s policy platform events, planned and ad hoc, as well as the online Community of Practice it is setting up. The Secretariat also envisions that in parallel to these events, CSOs themselves take up issues and themes identified and others for discussion with donors and other stakeholders. This design envisions the role of the Secretariat as a facilitator and complementary to that of sector CSOs.
