Amid the unfolding Israeli genocide of Palestinians in Gaza, the UN Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People (CEIRPP) is hosting a two-day gathering in Geneva of international civil society organizations working to support Palestinians April 3 and April 4, from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. CET. Center for Constitutional Rights Staff Attorney Samah Sisay will be presenting in a plenary session, alongside representatives from Gaza and across Palestine, South Africa, the United States, Chile, Argentina, and Australia.  

In the committee's words, it intends to "strengthen partnerships with civil society organizations, identifying common priorities and messaging on core and emerging topics, including on ending the occupation, apartheid and genocide, as well as the responsibility of Member States to prevent and to protect the Palestinian people, and ensuring accountability as a fundamental requirement for the justice that is vital for peace," as well as to "leverage CSO networks to promote objectives common with the Committee mandate. It will be dedicated to acquainting the Committee with current CSO initiatives, building partnership where possible with CSOs to advance these initiatives, and discussing how CSO voices and initiatives could also further support the Committee mandate."
