Webinar: International human rights mechanisms and fisheries

This is a recording of a webinar organised by One Ocean Hub, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and the Danish Institute for Human Rights. The webinar is the second of two webinars, part of a dialogue series on human rights actors and fisheries.

The dialogue series explores how national and international human rights actors are using their respective mandates to promote and protect the rights of small-scale fishers, fish workers and their communities.

The second webinar focuses on protecting the human rights of small-scale fishers through international human rights mechanisms. Representatives from the mechanisms share examples of current advice and recommendations to states in relation to the human rights of small-scale fishers and indigenous peoples. This is followed by discussions on opportunities for deepening their engagement and collaboration on these issues with national human rights institutions, civil society and other key actors.
