Geneva Centre and Emirates Association for Human Rights Discuss Joint Cooperation



The meeting was held at the Centre?s headquarters and was attended by Mr. Mohamed Al-Shamsi, Board member of the GCHRAGD.

Al Qassim expressed his appreciation of the objectives of the Association and its staff efforts to promote the human rights culture and awareness in the local community.

He pointed out that this approach has helped the UAE to be ranked the world’s top in peaceful co-existence among the diverse nationalities, living in the UAE (200 nationalities), not to mention the inherent harmony and cohesion between them, as accredited by UN human rights organizations.

Al Qassim added that these indicators helped launch a new initiative to build the Geneva Centre for Human Rights in 2013. The Centre holds several human rights events and research activities and training programs that are aimed to promote social awareness on this issue.

For his part, Mohammed Al-Kaabi valued the Centre?s vision and strategy, stressing the Association?s keenness to benefit from the Centre?s programs and expertise by means of joint cooperation between both sides.

Al-Kaabi stressed the importance of exchanging experience between staff from both sides in order to enhance their practical performance and to achieve the joint goals of the Centre and the Association. (WAM)
